Rent a Kayak in Concord

  • Jun 15, 2013 · 9:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's get together and rent some kayaks with some other meetup groups. We may be able to get a group rate if we rent enough kayaks but they charge $17/hour for 1 person kayak and $18/hour for a 2 person kayak.

Typically takes at least an hour or two but might take longer depending on your paddling speed and desire.  This is a very calm river, very suitable for beginners.

If you don't have a car, you can take the commuter rail to Concord, according to Google it is about 10 minutes walk. There is a train that arrives around 9:15 am

A few of us might go over to Walden Pond afterwards to go swimming. If you're interested, bring a swimsuit.

We'll meet at the edge of the parking lot (free parking if you are renting a kayak)

Bring cash to pay for the boat.

    Mary - I'm SO sorry to cancel so last minute. I'd forgotten to change my Sat. alarm time so am too late.

  • John K

    just a thought keep in mind we have had a lot of rain so rivers will be higher and faster currents be prepared for it see you all saturday

    June 13, 2013

    • Lisa

      Given the increased current, do you think it'll still suitable for us beginner types?

      June 13, 2013

    Last minute question-are we meeting at 1071 Soldiers Field Rd. in Boston or 496 Main Street in Concord at 11:30? It may seem like it is obvious that it is the latter but I would hate to arrive at the incorrect location just in case. Does anybody have an idea whether or not I need to book one for rental in advance and how much I can expect to pay? I still do not have my own boat, paddle, or PDA.

    I will be renting as well. Can anyone please provide me with the phone numbers for renting in Concord and Foote Brothers so I am covered this weekend?

    Hi Mary - I've noticed that you are calling to make our reservation. Are you assuming we all will be renting unless we specify otherwise? I just want to clarify that I WILL be renting. If you will not be reserving a boat for me via the group, please let me know and I will reserve a boat for myself. Thank you!

    PS: Hoping there will be swimming at Walden Pond afterwards. I would be in for that. Thx!

    June 11, 2013

    • Mary

      Yes - please let me know either via email or posting here if you will not be renting

      June 11, 2013

  • John K

    I paddle this river a bit and will put in down stream and head to boat house meet up there

    June 9, 2013

    • Todd

      John, Ed is also planning on launching from Lowell St so I wouldn't think that would be an issue.

      June 10, 2013

  • Todd

    I cannot find a website for this business, please post.

    • Debra L.

      Here's a link to a Patch article about the boathouse w/pictures. The website they list doesn't seem to work, though.

    Hope you run this event in Concord again and would love to make it! The Concord River is such a great place to paddle and convenient for those who need to rent or have their own kayak, with the Lowell St. launch.

    June 8, 2013

  • Mary

    Since the event is full, please make sure your RSVP is updated 24 hours in advance to allow others to take your place if you can't make it. Thanks!

    June 8, 2013

  • Ed. O

    Can I join you in my own boat, launching from the Lowell St, access. I do not need to rent.

    June 7, 2013

  • Mary

    Also the parking is limited and ONLY for those renting a kayak so we can't help people that aren't renting, sorry.

    June 5, 2013

    • Debra S

      for those with their own boats, there is the very popular boat launch on Lowell Street just mile downstream of the South Bridge Boat House with plenty of parking on the street.

      June 5, 2013

  • Mary

    Some additional information about the location, it's a very calm river, suitable for beginners.
