Moonlight Canoe Tours
Dusk is a magical time to be on the water, so what could be more blissful than paddling a canoe by moonlight? We push off as the sun sets for an evening of relaxation, good food, and conversation.
Our boathouse in Newton, located on the flatwater Lakes District of the Charles, is the perfect location for this opportunity to unwind. As the moon rises to light our way, we'll watch herons browsing along the banks, river otters fishing for their last meal of the day, and other wildlife settling in for the night.
Before and during your time on the water, your guide will share the rich history of the area, including the Canoe Clubs, Norumbega Park and the Totem Pole Ballroom, and our own historic boathouse.
Create your own private tour for an unforgettable group or corporate outing!
After cheese and crackers, light snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and dessert, we will return to the boathouse. Bring warm clothing, as it can get chilly after the sun sets.
Our Moonlight Tours are designed as a slow, relaxing group paddle suitable for folks of all paddling abilities. Be prepared to paddle a canoe 2–3 miles over the duration of the tour.
