Barbeque Kayak Tours from
Kendall Square

Enjoy a wonderful time on the water, plus great BBQ, during our famous Barbeque Tours.
Enjoy an evening paddling the most scenic urban river in the country, followed by some of the best food the area has to offer.
We will start off with a quick introduction to kayaking and the basic strokes, then launch our double kayaks for a guided paddle on the Charles River. While exploring, you'll enjoy the best skyline view in Boston and explore the lagoons of the Esplanade, while learning about the exciting role that the Charles River has played in Boston's history. Upon return to the dock, we will sit down for a barbecue picnic catered by Redbones of Somerville.
The tour is offered from our Cambridge location in Kendall Square.
Create your own private tour for an unforgettable group or corporate outing!
While not a regularly scheduled event, we are happy to run private Barbeque Tours at our other rental locations for $63 per person, or combine the Barbeque Tour with a One-Way Rental from Kendall Square to Allston/Brighton for groups of ten or more. The price for the one-way tour is $90 per person, and we can arrange a return shuttle for $75 per trip (14 passengers/trip). Reservations are required.
2.5-Hour Barbeque Tour in Kendall Square meets at our T-accessible Cambridge location in Kendall Square. Reservations must be made 24 hours in advance so we can order food.
$75 includes guiding, kayak rental, food, and beverages.
