Enjoy a half day excursion catering to all ages! Our most popular tour with a 4-hour duration allows you to experience the seas and wildlife in the area.
Our half-day excursions cater to all ability levels by using the wind, tides, and dynamics of the group to ensure the most enjoyable paddling experience. At Maine State Sea Kayak, we feel that a four-hour ecological tour gives you 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, and we highly recommend adding a Sip’s lunch box to your reservation! Tandems are most commonly used versus single kayaks
All participants must be checked in half an hour prior to trip time, this is for safety purposes.
