***This program is part of Waypoint's Summer Nights Programs - designed for kids, teenagers & young adults under 21***

Waypoint's Summer Nights Programs are funded in part though Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation's Summer Nights Program: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/dcr-summer-nights-program which provides free evening programming for youth, promoting healthy lifestyles and shared stewardship of our state parks.

The Waypoint Outdoor Kayaking program will give you access to some of New England's most beautiful lakes, rivers, and coastline. Enjoy the fun and serenity of the water all while being part of a supportive community. Benefit from the wide array of adaptive kayaking equipment designed to meet your individual needs. Our highly trained staff will instruct, support, and encourage you as you learn new skills or further develop your existing ones. All kayaking programs will be custom designed to fit the needs of you and/or your group. 

Instructors: TBD ([email protected]; 781-325-7980)

Location/Directions: The best way to find the boat launch is to type "Magazine Beach Cartop Launch" into Google Maps (we cannot attest if this works for any other navigation app). While on Memorial Drive going east (towards Boston), stay to the right as if you were exiting to get onto the BU Bridge. The right turn into the parking lot is on the off ramp before the rotary. For public transportation, the closest bus is the 47; however, the green line stops across the bridge at Boston University West and is a 1/2 mile walk from that stop to the kayak site. Coordinates are 42.354739, -71.112092. See Map on the side of this page for a visual and call us if you need further directions!

Conditions: We will be paddling on the lower basin of the Charles River near Boston Harbor. The water can be choppy with minor waves and some boat traffic such as rowers and small sailboats. You'll need to be able to stay to the side and follow steering directions mostly independently. 

Bathrooms: There will be an accessible porta potty at this site, and there are flush toilets across the park (~5 min walk)

What to bring:

  • Water bottle
  • Sandals with a heel strap or sneakers that you don't mind getting wet
  • Sunglasses with a strap
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
