Canoe, Paddleboard or Kayak in Somerville, Blessing of the Bay

Come visit our newest location on the Mystic River! Rent a Canoe, Paddleboard, or Kayak  in Somerville and paddle the full seven miles of the Mystic River, including skyline views and access to the scenic lakes and swimming area. The DCR Blessing of the Bay Boathouse is a short one mile walk from the Assembly Row train station and shops and bars — Come by T and end your day with ice cream or dinner in the busy Assembly Row area!

Sign up for a Mystic River Shuttle Trip and paddle one-way starting four miles upstream at the Mystic Lakes with space for picnics and swimming.

Never Kayaked or Canoed before? Consider taking one of our Quick Start classes to learn how to maneuver your boat and basic safety info like how to paddle in wind and how to dress.

We are proud to share the 2016 water quality report. You can see the full Mystic River Watershed map and read more about the water quality monitoring program and efforts to keep the river clean and healthy by our friends at the Mystic River Watershed Association.
