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.

  • Charles River Canoe & Kayak
    In the early ?70s, Boston-area resident Mike Farny dreamed of creating affordable outdoor recreational activities for his community to enjoy.

Select trips also include lunch to fuel participants as they navigate difficult waterways and jump through flaming hoops. 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.

  • Fishaholiks
    A day with Fishaholiks isn't your typical fishing trip. Things start early, with groups learning to cast nets, forage for bait, and paddle their kayaks.

Guides help men and women fish for freshwater species such as northern pike, as well as saltwater species such as striped bass. The use of kayaks also offers an eco-friendly alternative to fishing from motorized boats.
