Charles River Canoe and Kayak
Head downstream and you'll encounter local colleges (Harvard, M.I.T., and B.U.) and eventually the Esplanade (a great picnic spot!) and the unforgettable Boston skyline.
This nine-mile stretch of river has no current, allowing painless round trips. However, renters can also enjoy one-way trips to or from our Cambridge location in Kendall Square — a unique way to see the city! Learn more about our Boston Location in Allston/Brighton.
Our Boston location operates in cooperation with the Massachusetts Dept. of Conservation & Recreation.
