Obear Park is a little known gem on the Danvers River, nestled just upriver from where the Bass River flows into the Danvers River, and just downriver from where the Waters and Crane River converge to form the Danvers River.
The Starbucks Paddle was dreamed up years ago by one of our friends and former guides, Steve. We run this tour in honor of him and the love he had for this little part of the world. He saw the beauty of the Bass River, which ran right by his home in Goat Hill, Beverly, and knew it would make the perfect setting for an adventure paddle to Starbucks on Eliot Street. A short paddle from Obear Park in Beverly lets us ride the incoming tide all the way up the Bass River to where it meets Rt. 62. There, we'll take out on the river banks, pile into Starbucks (we recommend leaving your paddle outside :) ) and pick up the drinks that we have conveniently ordered ahead of time. We'll sip our drinks overlooking the tidal river before getting back on the water and riding the ebbing tide back out.
