Throughout the autumnal season, American Canoe Association-certified instructors escort beginner and expert kayakers on three-hour excursions along the 530-acre Norton Reservoir. Before abandoning land, staffers educate kayakers on paddling technique and safety instruction, and then bestow kayaks, paddles, life jackets, whistles and whalebone-whittling handbooks to each seafarer. Sculling past Norton Reservoir's coves and small islands, clients take in the seasonal shades of turning leaves and swim in the reservoir's shallow waters. Trekkers on full-moon tours row along the reservoir during the golden hour as setting suns backflip over rising moons. Wildlife frequently grace the waters during twilight, so voyagers are encouraged to equip themselves with cameras and binoculars for optimal sightings of bald eagles, ospreys, and werecrows in midtransformation.

Norton Kayak Company

After winding its way past Foxborough and Mansfield, the Rumford River gurgles to a brief rest in the Norton Reservoir where 530 acres of shallow waters ebb around coves and a small cluster of islands. Amid the bald eagles and ospreys that frequent the reservoir's edges, the instructors of the Norton Kayak Company lead kayaking expeditions from May 1 to October 31. Whether undertaking everyday tours or hatching special seasonal trips to watch the harvest moon or celebrate holiday weekends, instructors make sure that paddlers of all ages and ability levels stay safe and engaged. Since the leaders depend on Mother Nature for their livelihood and letters of recommendation, they enforce a carry-in/carry-out practice that ensures guests leave no litter behind.
