Off-Site Rental Rates

Want to rent a boat, but don't want to be limited to one of our locations? Maybe you're taking a weekend holiday to the mountains and want to explore a lazy river by canoe? Perhaps you are looking for ocean kayaking adventures along the Maine coast?
Charles River Canoe & Kayak offers the perfect solution: an Off-Site Boat Rental. Call to reserve a boat, then pick it up at our Newton Boathouse. We'll provide PFDs, paddles, and equipment to transport the boat on your car. We can also deliver boats to the location of your choice.
You can also add 15 days of Off-Site Rental to your Season Pass for a very reasonable fee.
Reservations Are Recommended — Pick Up in Newton Only
Call (617) 965-5110 to Reserve or Ask Questions
Release Forms & Information Packets
