Watersports at UMass Boston for 2016

Due to the impacts of construction on campus and related accessibility upgrades taking place this season to the Fox Point Dock we are limiting our regular waterfront activities and programming. However we will still be offering kayaking and standup paddleboarding FREE for UMass Boston students with a valid ID at the Carson Beach location. **Carson Beach Location is now closed for the season please see Boating in Boston website for other locations**

Information for the Carson Beach location can be found here.

Other Boating in Boston locations will remain open
