All our trips are paddled in custom built Skin-on-Frame kayaks. Based on the original Inuit craft, these incorporate high performance fabrics and designed to create a light, fast and stable boat. Perfect to exploring the Maine coast.
These are not your typical plastic outfitter boats. These boats were specifically designed and built to be extremely stable and easy to paddle. Their light, their fast and their fun!
Four people is our maximum size group. There's no worry of being lost in a crowd with us.
All trips are lead by a Registered Maine Sea Kayak Guide and an American Canoe Association Sea Kayak Instructor. Guides have been certified in First Aid and Wilderness First Aid.
You wont find plastic wrapped sandwiches and a juice box at our break stops. We work with you to customize a menu that will be both delicious and filling.
Our Friendship base has restrooms and showers, so the only thing you'll have to bring back with you are you memories. Leave the grit and sand with us, we'll recycle it!
If your staying in the Rockland/Camden area, we can pick you up and drop you off.
Owl's head light marks the southern entrance to Rockland harbor. Leaving out of Birch Point State Park, we'll approach the light from the south, offering beautiful views of the Camden Hills in the background. We'll stop at the base of the light for lunch where a short hike will bring you to the lighthouse.
Muscongus Bay encompasses almost 100 square miles of islands and shoreline. That's almost twice the size of Acadia National Park. We start in the small fishing village of Friendship and trace the history of the bay as we make our way to one of the islands for lunch.
Eastern Egg Rock, at the edge of Muscongus Bay, is the southern most nesting site for Atlantic Puffins. We depart Friendship for the almost 8 mile trip out to the rock where we can watch and photograph the birds. At 16 miles with open ocean paddling, this an advanced trip. Prior sea kayaking experience is required.
Rockport and Camden have reputations for being some of the most beautiful and photographic towns in midcoast Maine. We depart out of Rockport's harbor park for the 8 mile round trip into Camden harbor.
Departing out of Waldoboro, we'll ride the ebbing tide down the Medomack to Friendship. Protected in all but the strongest winds, this is a relaxing trip where you'll see wilderness, wildlife and if we're lucky, experience a ride on a whirlpool.
We can customize just about any type of trip you can think of. Want to paddle over to grab a lobster roll and some fresh brewed ale? We can do that. What about a lobster boil on a beach? Yeah, that too. Send us a note or give us a call and let's talk about your dream trip.
