Boating in Boston

Boating in Boston drops oars in six locations—including local lakes, ponds, the Charles River, and Boston Harbor—sending visitors on watery adventures with a fleet of canoes, kayaks, sailboats, pedal boats, paddleboards, and festive and essential lifejackets. Whether navigating the peaceful waters of Hopkinton State Park's Hopkinton Reservoir—the place that, in 2002, started it all—or campus-adjacent eddies of UMass Boston's Fox Point Landing, visitors can hit the water untrained or sharpen skills with solo or group lessons. The crew of instructors also instills a love of boating in the littlest landlubbers with youth summer camps that teach basic skills and safety.

Customer Reviews

Great groupon deal for 129.00. I love paddle boarding and before I buy my own, this is a great option.

Very engaging and courteous staff! Felt welcomed all the way from when I stepped in the store to when I went to pay. Good work!

I brought it for one hour, but it turned out they up the price of rental, so the coupon is only worth the value of $20, then I have to pay extra to cover the extra $2 and tax on top - so don't think you can walk out without paying more.
