Boston Harbor Kayaking

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, AMC has closed all lodging and food service operations until July 1. Dates for all in person activities and programs posted below remain subject to change based on the latest public health guidance and government directives. Cancelled programs are not displayed. We encourage you to join AMC's online socials, educational programs, and trainings.

Trip dates: Sunday, August 2, 2020 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Join us on a paddling journey to several Boston Harbor Islands including Peddock, Rainsford, Lovell, Gallop, and Georges islands. Expect to paddle 8-10 nautical miles (9-11.5 statute miles) in mostly protected water, at a moderate pace of ~2.5mph (level 2). There will be boat traffic and chop at 3-4 channel crossings. We will be on the water for 4 hours plus an hour for lunch and other breaks.
You will need a proper boat (>15' with sealed bulkheads) and experience with wet exits and rescues. We will all have masks that can be slipped on and off throughout the day, as well as distancing on and off the water.
