Upcoming Events
Guided River & Harbor Tours
from our Cambridge Location
Experience the thrill of paddling under the Zakim Bridge on a Cahrles River Canoe & Kayak guided tour.
Revel in the best view of Boston's skyline — from a kayak on the Charles River or Boston Harbor! Our Skyline & Sunset Tours, Harbor Tours, Barbeque Tours, and Barking Crab Tours begin and end at our T-accessible Kendall Square location.
Your guide will entertain you with tales of Boston and Cambridge as you explore and enjoy one of the most scenic sections of urban river in the country. You can even follow up your paddling trip with some of the area's best cuisine on our Barbeque or Barking Crab Tours!
Skyline & Sunset Tours
Our 2-hour Skyline and Sunset Tours on the Charles River feature the classic Boston skyline view of the Hancock and Prudential Buildings, Citgo Sign, and State House Dome, plus the Esplanade and M.I.T.
Sunset Tours follow the same route, but are held in the evening so you can enjoy the sunset and the spectacle of an evening paddle in the city. Paddlers of all abilities are welcome, even those who have never paddled before!
Harbor Tours
Experience the thrill of paddling through the Charles River Locks into Boston Harbor on our Harbor Tours. You'll see the U.S.S. Constitution, U.S.S. Cassin Young, Old North Church, and Financial District and get a taste of paddling on saltwater. This 3-hour tour is suitable for all paddling abilities.
Barbeque Tours
Top off your skyline excursion with a barbeque picnic catered by Redbones of Somerville during our Barbeque Tours.
Get close to the Boston skyline on our Barking Crab Tour.
The tour itself is identical to the Skyline Tour, but you'll satisfy your taste buds once you return to the dock. Paddlers of all abilities are welcome.
Barking Crab Tours
Our premier Boston Harbor tour takes you through the locks, offers amazing views of the skyline and waterfront (see photo), and finishes with a seafood lunch at Boston's most famous clam shack. After lunch, you'll hop in our van for a quick shuttle back to Kendall Square. Our 4-hour Barking Crab Tour is for paddlers of all abilities.
