What we're about

Based on the north shore, but with members from all over northeastern Massachusetts, southeastern New Hampshire and beyond, this is the group for paddlers who enjoy their kayaking adventures at a laid back, leisurely pace. For us, it's not how quickly we can get from point "A" to point "B" while on the water. If your idea of kayaking means sharing with friends, new and old, the beauty of our local flat-water lakes and rivers as you paddle, then this group is for you. Some of the places we paddle include the Merrimack, Squamscott, Essex, and Charles rivers; Plum Island; lakes Massabesic, Pawtuckaway, Gardner and Chebacco; and Country, Tuxbury, and Great ponds.

Everyone is welcome to help suggest and plan adventure destinations for future activities, as this is what makes a fun and successful group.

We like to bike, too. See our companion Meet-Up group, North Shore Bicycling for Fun.
