Free Demos Every Day
Buying a boat is like buying shoes — you need to find the model that does what you need and a size that fits. Our experienced sales staff will help choose the right style of boat or SUP, but you need to try it out on the water to make sure it's right for you.
That's why Charles River Canoe & Kayak offers free, on-water boat, SUP, and paddle demos every day at our Paddling Store in Waltham. You are welcome to try out each item for up to 15 minutes at no charge.
If you'd like to spend more time getting a feel for the boat, you are always welcome to rent a canoe, kayak, or SUP from our large rental fleet. Simply pay standard rental rates and you can enjoy an extended test-paddle. We even offer off-site rentals so you can test the boat or SUP in real conditions.
