Accessible boating

Access to recreational boating in Massachusetts state parks is provided through adaptive recreational programming in the spring, summer, and fall.

Kayaking, canoeing, sailing, and rowing programs are offered seasonally through the Universal Access Program. Most programs take place on ponds or lakes, with river opportunities available for more experienced paddlers. Most boating programs have a small fee, and pre-registration is always required. Contact us for more information, or to be notified of upcoming program locations and dates.
