About Us

Greetings, My name is Brad Jordan and I am the Owner-Operator of Maine State Sea Kayak. My team and I look forward to paddling with you!


Since 2000, Maine State Sea Kayak has been delighting adventurers with ecological tours on the remote western side of Acadia. We are a small professional sea kayaking tour company dedicated to providing our clients with kayak tours of the highest quality.

Small enough to care yet big enough to provide that outdoor experience you’re looking for with Registered Maine Guides who are friendly and passionate about paddling and preserving Maine’s natural beauty. Maine State Sea Kayak wants the time you spend with us to be the highlight of your visit on Mount Desert Island. We know that vacations are special and your time is precious. With those thoughts, we welcome the opportunity to provide a fun, safe sea kayak excursion for you. Explore the power of Acadia with us.

“Had a fun morning exploring the waters outside Barrett Island. A bald eagle flew overhead almost immediately. Beautiful!!! Saw lots of birds -Kevin was a great guide – identifying all of the wild life. Enjoyable way to see MDI!”

Amazing Nature Experience

“My guide was very knowledgeable and tried his best to accommodate everyone in our party! He pointed out eagles, eagles nests, seals, loons, and more! It was an overall amazing experience and I would do it again!”

A Great Experience

“This was not our first time kayaking but it was one of the best experiences we had. Very knowledgeable guides and they add to the overall experience. When we return to Bar Harbor, we will definitely book with them again.”
