We will meet at Boston Harbor at 8:30pm right at sunset. The goal is to find and enjoy the bioluminescence. This should be a gentle paddle going approximately  6 nautical miles. Along with the required kayaking essentials all participants are required to have a white light on them that can be turned on to avoid collision.

I expect this sea kayak trip to have this difficulty and these conditions.  View the sea kayak difficulties definitions on the Activity Types page.

  • Difficulty: SK II
  • Wind:less then 10 knots
  • Waves: 6 inches or less
  • Route:
  • Distance:  6 nm
  • Pace: slow to moderate

We will paddle from Boston Harbor to Fish Trap
