What we're about

The Paddlers Committee of the Boston Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) includes both whitewater and sea kayak activities. Our goal is to operate a safe and well-organized program of paddling within the New England area. We run a variety of activities including: clinics, introductory instructional trips, easy day trips, intermediate day trips, and overnight trips, led by volunteer members. If you are interested in a particular trip, contact the trip's leader or co-leader per the trip listing; he or she will have some questions about your paddling background and can advise you on the appropriateness of the trip for your level of experience and skill.

Hingham Bay Paddle

Needs a location

Come paddle Hingham Bay with us. Hingham Bay is the eastern most of the three bays that form Boston Harbor. It is home of several of the Boston Harbor Islands that we will visit including Grape and Bumpkin Islands. We will also visit Worlds End, which is owned by the Trustees for Reservations. We will paddle eight miles in fairly protected water with some tidal currents - wind can always be a factor. We will paddle at an easy to moderate pace. This is a group activity and everyone is expected to stay together. Your skill set MUST include wet exits and assisted rescues. Required Equipment: Kayak >14 feet with closed hatches, spray skirt, PFD, and paddle clothing appropriate for the weather (No cotton) More information will be provided after registration.
