What You'll Get
Maybe you’ve lived by the Charles River your whole life. Maybe you’ve run along the Esplanade, longing to ride its current like a baby in a wicker basket. Now that it's clean, the Charles is pretty, but what good does it do you (apart from cleaning your clothes and mangos)? Get a fun, invigorating workout with today's Groupon: $25 gets you a $50 canoe or kayak rental from Charles River Canoe & Kayak. Charles River Canoe and Kayak has three rental locations: in Boston and Newton for the boating on the Charles River and in Natick for Lake Cochituate.
There are tons of rental options at Charles River Canoe & Kayak, including standard canoes, XL canoes, single kayaks, triple kayaks, kid’s kayaks, toy dog kayaks, and more. Rent whatever floats your boat (depending on the size of your boat, some rentals may be too small to float it). Prices vary. You can rent a standard 2-3 person canoe for the whole day for only $64 or $16 per hour; with one $50 Groupon, you can rent a canoe for three hours. The larger Tripper XL canoe fits 4-5 friends and costs $24 per hour.
Yelpers are big fans of Charles River Canoe & Kayak, and who wouldn’t be? Bostonians can enjoy nature close to home and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city without going far. Alternative escapes from the hustle and bustle (scuba diving in Fresh Pond, going on ABC's Wife Swap with a rural couple, etc.) are less satisfying than canoeing on the Charles River.
Every single Yelp review given to Charles River Canoe and Kayak has been a perfect five stars. Here are a few:
- “Kayaks, Canoes and Paddleboats - SO COOL! Whatever your waterboat fancy you can rent here and leave the cleaning and care to the Charles River Canoe staff.” – Donna D.
- “A good way to get some exercise, observe native wildlife, and have fun with friends all while getting some fresh air… requires no prior knowledge of canoeing or kayaking… I've never had a bad time yet. I've seen turtles, ducks, geese, swans, herons, and all sorts of other critters.” – Iska B.
- “Love love love! …there's plenty of options for being all by your lonesome or going with a gaggle of friends… the logistics are executed with a minimum of fuss and bother - you just get right out into the Charles and enjoy your day.” – Francesca R.
