High Tides & Good Vibes

Where all the weekend warriors can gather locally.

Ahh, summer in the city – so much to do outside! There are quite a few superb recreational opportunities situated, right here, in the South End's backyard.

If you decide to join and become a member, you will not be charged for the usage of boats and other equipment. Community Boating Inc. offers several types of membership options starting as low as $99 per month.  If you cannot sail, kayak or paddleboard, the classes and instructors are included in most memberships available.

Furthermore, Community Boating Inc. also hosts several enjoyable, popular events in the summer. For (instance or exemplar), with the collaboration of the community, the July 4th SAILabration is a fundraiser designated to raise funds for the junior and universal access program. This event incorporates a clam bake, DJ, and radio broadcast of the Boston Pops Concert.

Since the establishment in 1946, Community Boating Inc. has offered sailing and other water sports opportunities on the Esplanade. Rentals and memberships are at a fraction of the price when compared to other similar venues outside of the city. They offer kayak, SUP, sailboat, and facility rentals giving the consumer many options to select from. In addition, they offer three award-winning programs – a youth program, adult program, as well as a universal access program. The universe access program is designed to fit the needs and introduce the environment to people of all ages and disabilities. As an added bonus, you’re welcome to take your pooch out sailing under presumption they are well-behaved and wears a life vest throughout the experience. 

After a lively day of fun in the sun, make a quick pit stop and indulge yourself at Lobstah On A Roll. Positioned on Columbus Ave, Lobstah On A Roll is praised for their over-sized lobster rolls and other delicately hand-crafted sandwiches.  And of course, for your Pooch, pick up a popular frozen treat, in stock, at the South End’s neighborhood grocery, Foodies Market.
