Where we paddle

Aqua-Safari tours will meet at the appropriate shop location, and paddle along our routes on the West Side of Mount Desert Island (All shuttling is provided). Our Aqua-Safari’s are catered to all ability levels. Using the wind, tides, and dynamics of the group to ensure the most enjoyable paddling experience. We feel that a 4 hour tour gives adequate time for relaxation, wildlife viewing, and interpretation from our professional Registered Maine Guide staff. Your Registered Maine Guide will decide which route will be the most enjoyable and safest based on wind direction/velocity, visibility and tides. We paddle Western Bay (Pretty Marsh), Blue Hill Bay, and Somes Sound. Most tours are one-way. Occasionally, a tour might be round trip. Your guide will stop on a coastal beach for a short lunch break. Average distance covered is 5-7 miles!

Acadia Youth Kayaking and Oyster tours will paddle at the northern part of the island, departing from Hadley Point Public Beach. Your Registered Maine Guide will decide which route will be the most enjoyable and safest based on wind direction/velocity, visibility and tides. Focusing on exploring small coastal islands, aquatic sea farms, and wildlife opportunities! These excursions do not take a break on a beach but will have ample opportunity to relax and float as a group. Average distance covered is 3-5 miles!
