Canoe, Paddleboard & Kayak in Boston, Allston/Brighton

Rent a Canoe, Paddleboard and Kayak in Boston and enjoy one of the most scenic sections of urban river in the country. Boating on the Charles River from our Boston location in Allston/Brighton is a wonderful respite from the surrounding city, with parkland on both shores and rowers plying the waters.

Paddle downstream towards Boston to see local colleges (Harvard, M.I.T., and B.U.) the Esplanade, and Boston skyline. Make sure to stop for a picnic

This nine-mile stretch of river has no current, allowing easy round trips. We will not be offering one-way rentals from Boston and Cambridge this season. Learn more about our Boston Location in Allston/Brighton.
