The Charles River in Dedham allows you to enjoy one of the longest stretches of uninterrupted flat water on the Charles River. Paddlers can enjoy calm paddling, with much of its shoreline being forest, marsh, or protected parkland.

We will begin our paddle at the Dolan Center in Dedham, passing Cutler Park, Millennium Park, Charles River Reservation and Stimson Wildlife refuge before heading back.

The current in this stretch of river is generally mild, so round trips are easy. With lots of wildlife, this paddle will be a scenic and relaxing way to enjoy the Charles River.

Space is limited, so please email me at Meeting time will be 3:45 pm with a 4 pm launch. Ending time will be roughly around 7:30. We will turn around and paddle back, no car shuttle this time. You must bring your own kayak.
