Sea Kayaking Trips

paddleintro

Massachusetts has over 1,500 miles of coastline, ranging from the dramatic rocky shores of Cape Ann to the sandy beaches of Cape Cod and the Islands. We offer a wide selection of day trips to locations throughout Through our sea kayaking trips you can experience the amazing Massachusetts coast.

At Charles River Canoe & Kayak, our focus is education. Therefore, most of our trips have a strong instructional component, and all offer a low student:instructor ratio. Even our “destination” trips incorporate some paddling and safety skill development. It’s our goal to have kayakers leave our trips as better paddlers.

These trips offer a level of adventure for everyone, whether you’re a complete beginner looking for an Introductory Trip or a seasoned paddler seeking to expand your skills or go somewhere new. See our trip ratings for more information on necessary skill levels for our trips.

If you would like a one-day introduction to kayaking on the ocean, our Level 1 Kayak Trips cover the same skills as the Introduction to Kayaking series while taking time to enjoy a day along the prettiest sections of the Massachusetts coast.

All of our trips emphasize skills development, but you’ll also spend time touring the area. You’ll learn efficient paddling technique, the necessary strokes to maneuver your kayak in any direction, and intermediate techniques such as bracing to prevent a capsize. We also emphasize safety issues such as trip selection and practicing assisted rescues.

Life jacket, paddle, wetsuit, and paddling jacket rentals are included in the price of the trip. Drysuit rentals are available for $20 per trip. Bring a hearty lunch, and dress for the weather! Trips always run unless the weather is extreme; alternate plans will usually be arranged. Trips run from 8am to 5pm. Please contact us if you have questions.
