[Announcements: Somerville Blessing of the Bay]


Catering & Food at our Somerville Location

Food is an excellent companion to paddling, and Paddle Boston is happy to arrange catering from any local restaurant.

We have some picnic tables at our boathouse that are available on a first come first served basis. You can arrange the catering yourself, see our recommendations below. Events with catering for over 50 people require a permit from the DCR, please apply directly online here.

If you’re looking for a place to eat after paddling, we strongly recommend any of the restaurants at Assembly Row.
