Canoeing in Charlemont, MA

Canoeing in Massachusetts with family and friends is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors and expand your world of adventure. Traditional whitewater canoeing allows you to paddle with grace and style developed throughout the centuries. State-of-the-art open canoe designs offer the same maneuverability and excitement as some of the hottest whitewater kayaks, yet canoeing requires a greater degree of finesse to master.

Zoar Outdoor offers both solo and tandem novice canoeing lessons as well as canoeing clinics for intermediate and advanced canoe students. If you’ve always wanted to take a longer canoeing trip, but are not sure you possess the skills, try one of our Tandem River Canoeing clinics. For more experienced canoe students, we offer intermediate and advanced canoeing clinics taught by experienced ACA certified whitewater instructors that emphasize river running and whitewater playboating skills. Check out our canoeing adventures below.
