Where have you kayaked in the past?

Martha's Vineyard (two lessons two years ago, which until recently made up my vast kayaking experience) and the Charles (where I'm enjoying lessons and paddling on my own via a Charles River Canoe and Kayak program). Plus I've done a bit of canoeing on the Mystic River (removing water chestnuts as part of a volunteer day).

Where would you like to kayak?

I live on the Cambridge/Somerville line, so the Charles and Mystic rivers, plus the Boating in Boston spots, where rentals and commutes are easy until I get comfortable. Then I'd love to join some of these other meetups a bit further away (rentals permitting, which I completely understand when unavailable) and enjoy both new scenery as well as meeting new folks in the group (who might tend to paddle only in certain areas, say, NE Mass. and NH).

What type of kayak do own? Please provide details such as brand and model, sit-or or sit-in, length, number of hatches, etc.

Rent, though someday own (and I've already heard from more than one person int the group that getting a 2nd-hand one from a shop is the way to go).


Hi, I'm an improving novice looking to meet fellow casual paddlers.
