Canoe, Paddleboard, & Kayak in Cambridge

July 3-4th Restrictions:

Due to security restrictions and set up for the fireworks, there are some restrictions on where you can paddle starting on Monday Jul 2 – July 4th. The Coast Guard has place buoys along the Boston shoreline from the Longfellow Bridge to the Mass ave Bridge. No boats will be able to approach the Boston shoreline or enter the lagoons. You can view a map here.

Rent a Kayak in Cambridge and Paddle in the heart of the city from our location in Kendall Square! Take in the great views of the Boston skyline and the Esplanade, as well as other nearby landmarks like the Zakim Bridge, M.I.T., the Museum of Science, and Boston University.

This nine-mile stretch of river has no current, allowing for easy round trips. However, renters can also enjoy one-way trips to or from our Boston location in Allston/Brighton — a unique way to see the city!

Our Kendall Square location also hosts our spectacular Skyline Tours, Harbor Tours, and Barbecue Tours — a wonderful way for anyone to see the river. Learn more about our Cambridge Location in Kendall Square.
