quintessential Maine Kayak experience. With rugged coastline, kelp
beds, sandy beaches and plentiful wildlife, the southern end of Saco
Bay provides the perfect opportunity to experience the extreme
diversity of the Maine Coast. Once out of the immediate Harbor one
gets a feeling of remoteness that is difficult to find in Southern
There is plenty of protected water for peaceful kayaking and an abundance of wildlife . Wood Island light, built in the early 1800's is a popular destination, but most prefer the longer trip to Beach island just south of East Point where a colony of seals make their summer home. We don't encroach on the seal colony, but observe from a distance with binoculars.
" that we use are fast, stable, safe and maneuverable.
We supply wetsuit shorts or wetsuit "johns", depending on the weather, and life jackets and recommend that each kayaker wear a bathing suit, bring a wind breaker and, if the weather is cool, something to wear under the windbreaker. Shoes or sandals that you won't mind getting wet are required. Bring along a bottle of water, a light snack, a "sense of adventure" and you're ready to go.
