Your tour will meet at Charles River Canoe & Kayak's location in Nahanton Park in Newton. Our web page includes a map and directions
. There is free parking along the entrance road and in a parking lot 100 yards east (left) on Nahanton St.
Please check in at the tent next to the building on the hill when you arrive for your tour. Plan to arrive 10 minutes before your tour is scheduled to begin.
On warm days in the middle of the summer, you will probably be comfortable in shorts and a T-shirt. Bring a fleece, sweatshirt, or sweater in case you become chilled (especially if it's an evening tour), and a windbreaker in case it's breezy. Bug repellent is also a good idea.
If it's cooler, you will want clothing you can layer for warmth, including a top layer that will protect you from the wind. Jeans, sweatshirts, fleece sweaters, windbreakers or light parkas are good layering options. If it is very cool or windy, gloves and a hat are also a good idea.
If you wear glasses, a retaining strap is a good idea. Retaining straps can be purchased at our Waltham Shop or at many sporting goods stores.
Bring drinking water (very important on warm days and longer tours) and snacks to take with you on the water.
