Kayak Maine

 

Kayaking is a great way to explore the Maine outdoors. Whether paddling along the rocky shoreline, in a tidal creek, on a lake, pond, fast or gentle flowing river, you will soon leave the hustle and bustle behind, and find yourself immersed in a world of tranquility, beauty, and adventure.

 

Kayaking is an environmentally friendly way to see the natural beauty that Maine is famous for.

 

White water kayaks are short and very maneuverable, Touring Kayaks are long and fast, and offer lots of storage space to bring supplies for longer trips. Fishing Kayaks are very stable, and include fishing equipment such as rod holders and anchors. If you're not sure what's best for you, ask your outfitter.

 

The possibilities for Kayaking in Maine are endless. You can rent a Kayak, take a guided scenic tour or arrange for a multil-day trip with overnight camping. You decide how adventurous you want to be. 

Most kayak rental companies also have available canoes and stand up paddleboards for rent by the day or the hour. SUP, aka: stand up paddleboard, is all the rage right now. Some people prefer the traditonal posture of a canoe over a kayak, while sports enthusiasts enjoy the challenge and dynamic standing and surfing style paddling of a Stand Up Paddleboard.

 

Paddling along on a coastal tour, you're likely to see birds, seals, and beautiful scenery. For a quieter paddle, try one of the many inlets and tidal rivers that line the coast, or venture further inland to one of Maine's many Lakes and rivers.
