Propel yourself through the waters of the Boston Harbor in a two-person kayak. Learn paddling techniques, capsize and rescue procedures, weather and forecasting and navigation skills. Investigate water and shoreline ecology that only a kayak can access and camp out on island beaches. As your skills progress, tackle new challenges such as plotting your own course to another island and night paddles.
