Portland, Maine: Casco Bay Full-Day Kayaking Tour

Portland, Maine: Casco Bay Full-Day Kayaking Tour

Our Full-Day Kayak Tour is a chance to sea kayak to some of the most historically fascinating and scenic landmarks in the Portland region. Unlike our other tours, we limit this trip to 6 or fewer people and we require participants to have at least one previous sea kayaking experience. You'll spend the day island-hopping through the rugged islands of Casco Bay. Along the way you'll visit several 19th century forts, paddle past lighthouses and feel the swell of the open ocean underneath your kayak. On this trip we often visit some of Casco Bay’s lighthouses and forts, including Spring Point Light, Fort Preble, Portland Head Light, Fort Scammel, Ram Island Light, Bug Light and Fort Gorges. You'll also have the chance to hone your paddling skills, learn about the natural history of the area, visit islands on the Maine Island Trail and spot wildlife like seals, osprey and eiders. You'll see many sides of Casco Bay, including the bustling working waterfront of Portland harbor, the cliff-lined outer islands exposed to the open ocean and the more protected coves lined with beaches. This trip is designed for paddlers of a range of skill levels and the group will take many breaks and stops along the way. However, the trip does involve a very full and active day, so we suggest our shorter trips for first-time kayakers or anyone who has difficulty with prolonged physical activity. All participants should have tried sea kayaking at least once before. This trip sometimes starts in a different location than our main site (due to a one-way route), so you may be transported by van to the launching site at the start of the trip. The cost of this trip includes a delicious picnic lunch, with a vegetarian option.

We enjoyed the sightseeing cruise very much! Very well organized! The staff was very pleasant, and the tour guide gave us lots of information about the area and the lighthouses we saw. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day and smooth waters. We would not hesitate to book a cruise with this company in the future.

It was a ton of fun, the weather was perfect that day, MC was a fantastic guide and provided a lot of back story and information of the area and the light houses. The bikes were very comfortable and easy to ride. All in all, I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Portland ME area...

What a wonderful boat ride to the lighthouse and back. Glad I decided to take this particular tour. It was sooo worth it. Tour guide had so much information kudos to her!

Our cruise was entertaining, enjoyable and full of Portland history.
