Boston rentals

Is there anywhere in/near Boston that rents kayaks or rowing skiffs? My youngest daughter starts college there this month, so I may become a frequent Boston paddler. Thanks - Larry

Check out:

They are a great shop. I have only been to their Newton location…a suburb of Boston. Great choice of rentals, lessons…good people.


Also maybe
Flat water: Spot Pond is in the Middlesex Fells in Stoneham.

Sea: Has rentals, yearly leases and tours, from Rockport.

I haven’t used either, however.

Charles River Kayak
Check out Charles River Canoe & Kayak at

Will check these out next weekend.
