Charles River Moonlight Canoe Tour
Enjoy a Three-Hour Moonlight Charles River Canoe Tour from Newton
Price for 2 participants
Enjoy the beauty of the New England outdoors during a guided three-hour Charles River Canoe Tour at dusk. This unique experience gift begins just 20 minutes west of Boston in Newton, Massachusetts. Here on the flat-water Lakes District of the Charles River you and your guest will meet with your friendly Guide and the rest of the group.
At the Newton Boathouse you will be fitted with all of the equipment you need for this aquatic moonlit adventure. Once suited up, you will receive a quick introduction to canoeing strokes and a brief overview of the tour route. Once ready, you'll push off just as the sun is beginning to set.
As the moon rises to light your way, you'll watch herons browsing along the banks and other wildlife settling in for the night. During this relaxing canoe trip, you will anchor for cheese and crackers, light snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, and dessert before returning to the boathouse. This Charles River Canoe Tour is designed for all levels and no prior experience is necessary to enjoy the relaxing 2 to 3 mile paddle under the stars!

It was great. Only suggestion would be for the leaders to really tie the boats together and keep them together. Perhaps if there wete loops on the ends of yhe ropes and portable hooks o the boat. And have a small portable tray to put all the food on to pass around. Also a small potable light on the tray so you can actually see the food.

This was an ok experience. It's hard with 12 boats full of people who don't know how to canoe and therefore don't have a way to communicate things like speed, direction and control to their boatmate. it seemed to me this would be a perfect couples' therapy event! Also, when the full moon is hidden by clouds, maybe some further illumination during the flotilla snack time would've been helpful. I could hear frustration from the people around me on that one. also, for some reason, the second guide that guided us all back went much slower than the leader on the way out, and I had to keep my husband from barreling past him to get to the docks. He was impatient with being banged in to because no one really knew how to be in the water with other boats, us included! still, an intriguing time.

We enjoyed our canoe trip of the Charles River. If anything, we would have prefered perhaps a more refined snack on the river rather than prepackaged quesadillas and pinwheels, some nicer cheeses and crackers and other more 'gourmet' items. This was a wedding gift from a friend.
