Boston Harbor offers paddlers a variety of interesting islands and destinations, yet is very close and convenient. The inner islands offer protection from waves, but boat traffic and channel crossings are the main hazards. This paddle will visit Spectacle, Georges, and other islands depending on wind, weather, and group. The requirements for this trip are: (1) a sea kayak (14' or greater) with bulkheads fore and aft, deck lines, spray skirt, and PFD, and (2) must be able to paddle comfortably for 13 miles, wet exit and re-enter your kayak with an assisted rescue. Expect to spend five hours on the water with breaks.
