Gain a fresh perspective on a beloved local treasure with this sea kayaking tour through the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park. We'll spend the day paddling the historic Boston Harbor and enjoy a catered picnic lunch on one of the beautiful islands. We'll launch from downtown Boston and begin our experience with a ferry ride to Peddocks Island, once home to an active military fort. This tour is ideal for confident paddlers who have experience kayaking in areas of exposure to moderate wind and wave conditions. Learn all about the surrounding salt-water ecosystem and maybe even catch a glimpse of a crab or jellyfish under the water's surface. The best thing about this tour? We provide the food, equipment, and stellar guides - you just have to show up. We can't wait to paddle with you!
