2024 Season and Monthly Rental Passes

We encourage paddlers to come regularly to the UML Boathouse and get out on the water in our kayaks and canoes. Our season and monthly passes are a great bargain for people looking to spend a lot of time on the Merrimack! Individual benefits include: 

  • Unlimited individual single kayak or SUP full day rentals on the Merrimack River during our regular business hours
  • $10 guest fee applies for the use of tandem kayaks or canoes with a guest
  • $15 discount on all tours and classes with reservation
  • $20 discount per boat for 24-hour or longer offsite rentals

Passes are available to individuals or families:

  • Full Season pass valid the entire 2024 season*
  • A one-month or two-month season pass

A Family Pass includes the same benefits applied for 2 adults and 1 child under 18 years old in the same household. Additional children added to any Family pass for $50 each. (Please inquire to email: kate_ford@uml.edu to make full payment.) Only valid for the individual(s) listed on the pass. Passes may be purchased below or in person at the UMass Lowell Kayak Center.

All season passes are only valid for the individual(s) listed on the pass. 2 Month passes are valid 60 days and monthly passes are valid 30 days from the day they are purchased and do not carry over to next year. Monthly passes may be upgraded for the balance of the desired new pass.
