So What is Off-Season Paddling?

In the past, standup paddleboarding and kayaking in New England have been restricted to the "paddling season", mostly July and August.  In 2016, we changed that. Through guided paddle tours and wetsuit rentals, we were able to offer "off-season paddling", or as we like to call it, "paddling" . As the weather and water turn colder, we continue to get out there several times a week. During the week, we launch our tours from our Beverly location, and depending on conditions, explore the Danvers River, Salem Harbor, or Beverly coastline. On the weekends, we hit the road and explore some of our other favorite spots to paddle, from inland lakes and rivers to coastal salt marshes and estuaries. Wetsuits or drysuits are required for all of our tours from November to May, but we have rental wetsuits, booties, and gloves available, so all you have to do is bring your sense of adventure, coffee mug, and join us for some of the most memorable paddling you'll ever experience!

Check out each week’s destination on our Events page, and make sure to join our email list and follow us on social media (@coasttocoastpaddle) to stay up to date on all of our exciting paddles!
