$55 for a Two-Hour Boston Skyline or Sunset Kayak Tour for Two (Up to $110 Value)
From the Kendall Square launching point, beginning and experienced paddlers aged 8 and older embark on a Boston Skyline or Sunset Tour. After an introduction to basic kayak skills, paddlers hop into double kayaks and begin to glide down the Charles River along the Cambridge coast. During daytime tours, a guide relays historic facts and anecdotes about the Cambridge and Boston area as paddlers feast their eyes on MIT’s Great Dome and Boston’s Hancock and Prudential Buildings and State House Dome. In the evenings, tour-goers watch the sun setting over the river and observe Boston's city lights at dusk. Paddlers exchange pleasantries with the trolls that dwell under the many footbridges of the Storrow Lagoon and the Longfellow Bridge before returning to Kendall Square.
Charles River Canoe & Kayak
Paddle-seekers can experience the Boston skyline and Cambridge from Charles River Canoe & Kayak's Kendall Square location or try visiting the Nahanton Park local which features over 50 acres or forests and gardens all along the Charles River. Kayakers and canoe-enthusiasts alike will bask in over 12 miles of flatwater throughout Upper Falls to Needham. The on-staff guides lead tours of the Charles River and Boston Harbor to educate participants in ecosystem conservation, view the skyline and sunset, or explore historic structures. To prepare customers entering the water for the first time, instructors coach riders of all levels in private or group lessons at the paddling school, which draws on more than 30 years of instructional tradition. Staffers can also equip boaters in the shop—where P&H kayaks hang alongside paddleboards and Wenonah canoes, dreaming of one day being the inspiration for a traditional sea chantey. Crew members help clients choose their ride and accessories from these selections and others through free daily demonstrations.
