Each participant, or their guardian, must sign a waiver to participate in an Adventure East experience. Following payment of your online booking, your reservation confirmation will include a link to e-sign the waiver. Due to insurance requirements, we are unable to accommodate guests who do not sign a waiver.

We provide canoe and kayak rentals to the following paddling destinations:

Lake Warner — This gem of a lake in the middle of the valley at the base of Mt Warner is perfect destination for a two hour paddle. Surrounded by an abundance of wildlife you will be amazed by the remote feeling paddling among the reeds and lily pads. This paddle is great for those with less experience in a kayak.

Poplar Street — This 9-mile paddle from Turners Falls to Sunderland is one of our favorites. It's unlikely you will see other boats and almost certain you will see more than a few bald eagles. This paddle is approximately four-hours depending on river and wind conditions and requires prior experience in a kayak or canoe.

Sunderland Islands - This 2-hour out and back paddle around the Sunderland Islands is a wonderful way to start your river paddling explorations.
