This is the Meetup group for kayakers of all levels whether you're a beginner/novice or you have been kayaking for many years. Rooted on the North Shore with members from all over Northeastern Massachusetts, Southeastern New Hampshire and beyond, this group is for those who enjoy their kayaking adventures at a laid back leisurely pace.
If your idea of kayaking means sharing the sights and beauty of flat water lakes and rivers as you paddle along with friends, then this group is for you. Some of the places we may journey to include The Essex River, The Charles River, Plum Island, Lakes Quannapowitt and Pawtuckaway , just to name a few.
If you don't have a kayak but still like to spend some time on the water don't worry, we often go to destinations where kayak rentals are available for those who do not have one of their own. Everyone is welcome to help suggest and plan adventure destinations for future activities, as this is what makes a fun and successful group.
Carpooling is a good idea if you want to save money on parking and share fuel costs. Please share gas & parking expenses with your driver.
