Join us for a paddle in beautiful Hingham Harbor. With it's numerous undeveloped Islands and Points, Hingham is a very scenic place to paddle. We will stop at one of the undeveloped islands for a lunch/snack break. We will have some open water crossings of approximately 1 mile, and a couple of main boat channel crossings. We will be stopping at one of the undeveloped islands for a lunch/snack break.

This Is Important:

You must be comfortable paddling in open water, wind, waves, and current, as well as be able to paddle quickly to cross boat channels. Experience with self and assisted rescues is required. Hingham Harbor can become quite challenging very quickly.

    Too Muddy when we returned to the put in. The organizer should have scheduled it a little earlier... Who was the organizer who scheduled it anyways?

    A lot of cars to park in Hingham. I can get one more boat on my car if anyone is interested in car pooling. I plan on dining with the group. For the northern seacoast people, I can meet someone at the Stop & Shop in Danvers (rt 62). I can also meet in Woburn at the Woburn Mall.

    Ran out of space...
    Here is another Google Maps link picturing the parking lots. The boaters lot entrance is marked by a green arrow. The alternate entrance is near the red "A".

    A little friendly advice from a local that paddles in Hingham frequently - the farmers market is on Saturdays, not Sunday. For those traveling from a distance, you'll be happy to know there is a porta-potty near the swimmers beach parking lot and it's usually pretty clean and I think it will still be there for a few more weeks. There are 2 parking lots, one for swimmers and the other for boaters (free boat ramp). At this time of year you can most likely use either parking lot as the life guards are probably gone. Kayakers usually use the boaters parking lot and it is a closer walk to the "Stars" restaurant across the street after paddling. The entrance to the swimmers lot has a traffic light. The entrance to the boaters lot is directly across from the boat ramp. There is an exit from the boaters lot, nearest the bandstand, that says Do Not Enter...go in the next one nearer the boat ramp end of the parking lot (coming from the north). If you miss it, there is another entrance.
