Skyline & Sunset Kayak Tours
from Kendall Square

Great skyline views, like this one of the Hancock and Prudential Buildings, await paddlers on our Skyline Tours.
Revel in the best view of Boston's skyline — from a kayak on the Charles River! Our Skyline Tours and Sunset Tours begin and end at our T-accessible Kendall Square location.
We'll begin with a quick introduction to kayak strokes, then we'll launch our double kayaks and begin our paddle along the Cambridge shoreline.
After passing the Great Dome of MIT, we'll cross the Charles to the Esplanade, stopping mid-river to take in the skyline, including the Hancock and Prudential Buildings, Citgo Sign, State House Dome, and the Financial District.
We'll continue our relaxing paddle under the numerous footbridges of Storrow Lagoon, passing by the Hatch Shell (site of the Fourth of July Pops Concert) and under the Longfellow ("Salt-and-Pepper") Bridge back to Kendall Square.
Your guide will entertain you with tales of Boston and Cambridge, and talk about the history of the area. Paddlers of all abilities are welcome, even those who have never paddled before!
Create your own private tour for an unforgettable group or corporate outing!
Also Consider Our Boston Harbor Tour!
 
Our Sunset Kayak Tours are the perfect end to a day in the city.
In the evening, our Skyline Tours are transformed into Sunset Kayak Tours, providing an unparalleled opportunity to be on the river at sunset and see the city lights at dusk!
If you are interested in a longer tour that gives you a taste of paddling in Boston Harbor to the U.S.S. Constitution, try our Harbor Tours. Or, if your taste is for heartier fare, try our Barbeque Tour.
Two-Hour Boston Skyline Kayak Tours meet at our T-accessible Kendall Square location.
$49 for an Adult, including two hours of guiding and double kayak rental.
$45 for a Child ages 8 to 15. Each child must be accompanied by one adult.
