Reasonably quick response to emails, and he picked up the phone when I called so points for that. But I only wanted one SUP - which I recognize is a small order and not a lot of money. But I was willing to meet somewhere to pick it up. Unfortunately the logistics became an issue. The rate was good, about... More

Unfortunately I think this was a misunderstanding. You asked to meet around 10am to get a SUP. I simply told you that I was on a tight schedule on Saturday, and we would have to agree to an exact time, because if you were 20 minutes late I wouldn't be able to wait as I had other reservations. I told... More

Thank you so much for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. I try my hardest every day to make sure that we're offering the best customer service possible, because after all I'm a customer when it comes to anything other than paddling myself. Reviews and compliments like yours are what makes it all worth it... More

The delivery and pick-up service is unusual and amazing. I was staying at a private home in Wells, right on the beach. I wanted to be able to paddleboard in the ocean right outside the place. Because the paddleboard had to be delivered from Kennebunk, Stefan required that I rent two vessels. Therefore, I rented a kayak too, double the... More

Thank you for your review. We always try to provide the best service at the best value possible. I'm glad you enjoyed your experience. As far as the weight of the kayaks/SUPs, the single kayaks weigh about 50lbs, which is about average for a recreational kayak, and the SUP you had weighs about 42lbs. We do have some lighter Fiberglass... More

The drip rings on the paddles were missing or damaged (got completely soaked) and the weather was chilly so is was quite unpleasant. Not sure why customer service reviews are positive. We were told not to be late at the meet spot and were ourselves kept waiting. Were charged a full day for a couple of hours. Owner said he... More

Thank you for your review. You made a reservation for 2 kayaks for the full day, to be dropped off at 7:30am on Friday at the place you were staying. You then changed your mind and asked me to drop them off at Wells Harbor instead, which was fine. Then you called me at 10pm on Thursday evening wanting to... More

We were interested in renting stand up paddle boards this summer after a fun introduction at LL Bean last year. Spoke to Stefan and he was able to reserve the boards, arrange delivery, and most importantly-- recommend a location for our excursion. We were traveling with our boys, ages 9 & 11, and wanted to make sure we had a... More

Best customer service & best fun family activity! This is a little late but I felt I had to share...we rented kayaks from Stefan at Kayak Excursions during August of 2013 in Maine.

If you're looking to rent a kayak without any pressure on where to pick it up, this is an awesome idea. We rented a tandem kayak and spent several hours paddling around Cape Porpoise Harbor. The sheer convenience of meeting at a place close to our hotel (the Rhumb Line, which I'd also recommend) and not having to worry about... More

Our family of five (including three daughters ages 17, 20 and 23) had only kayaked twice before (many years ago), so we were looking for a fairly relaxed excursion. We were not disappointed! Stefan was really helpful and very accurate in his description and our family had a ball. He provided dry bags and gave great advice about the time... More
