Trips and Rentals

How do the unguided river trips work?
Once you have signed in at our shop in Raynham, we bring you and the boats up river and drop you off. You paddle down the river, give us a call when you are at the take out spot, and we will pick you up.

How long are the river trips?
Our unguided river trips are anywhere from 2 – 6 hours, and you can choose how long you want to paddle for. We also have 2 or 3 day overnight trips on the Taunton and Nemasket Rivers. The guided trips all have set times, and they are listed on the guided trips page.

What should I bring on a river trip?
You should bring a change of clothes, shoes that you do not mind getting wet, plenty of water, sunscreen, and snacks. We will provide your choice of canoe or kayak, paddles, and life jackets.

Do I need to make reservations?

It starts in Bridgewater, MA where the Town and Matfield Rivers converge, and flows to Somerset and Fall River, near Battleship Cove, and into Mount Hope Bay. The river is mostly calm, but there are a couple of places under some bridges, where there is some quickwater. It is a very diverse river, and there are stretches where the river looks like this:
