Each trip is led by a Registered Maine Sea Kayak Guide who will brief you on safety and proper paddling technique before leaving shore and help you identify wildlife and points of interest during the trip.
This trip is conducted in our comfortable, stable two-person kayaks which are perfect for enabling a group of mixed ability to experience the wonders of this coastal environment.
While we do paddle further on full day trips than our half-day trips we do not spend the entire time paddling! Our full day trips are centered around extraordinary destinations best reached by kayak that we will want to spend some time enjoying. We may stop more than once during the day to stretch and take time to both relax and explore our primary destination for an hour or more.
There are three itineraries we run in the Great Wass archipelago. All three are beautiful island hopping destinations with excellent opportunities for viewing wildlife. If you have a preferred destination your guide will make that request a priority however wind and tide conditions may dictate the final course of your Great Wass archipelago trip.
The Mistake island trip that visits Moose Peak lighthouse is an option on certain days of the month when the tides are favorable.
For kayaking, we recommend wearing something on your feet that you don't mind getting wet, shorts or light pants, a seasonable top with an extra layer (fleece, jacket, etc.), and a hat that provides sun protection. Other items you may want are sunscreen, sunglasses, binoculars, camera, snack, and water. We provide dry bags for you to pack items in.
Bring your favorite lunch to enjoy at our longer stop.
Group size is limited to 12 participants. A minimum of 4 participants is required to run a trip.
