to the Boston shore. On the trip across the river your guide will help you learn how to deal with any conditions that you might experience, like boat wakes and wind.
Once across the river the pace will mellow as the group ventures into the Esplanade and explores the Storrow Lagoon. Upon reaching the end of the lagoons, depending on the weather, the group will either cross back towards Cambridge or use the protection of the lagoon system to make it back to the docks.
No matter our course, you'll get great views of the Boston and Cambridge skylines, MIT, and the Museum of Science. Along the way your guide will entertain you with tales of Boston and Cambridge, talk about the history of the area, and give out some great pointers to make you a better paddleboarder.
This trip is best suited for paddlers who have taken our Introduction to SUP class, or have equivalent paddling experience. You should be able to comfortably paddle 3 miles an outing.
If you are interested in a longer adventure and want to learn more about open water SUP consider our Boston Harbor SUP Instructional Trip.
