Had a great time on my first kayaking tour. Our guide Mark was awesome! He made my friends and I feel very comfortable and safe being our first time ever. Mark took his time explaining what we might see and experience while out on the water. He was very informative about the history of the islands and also pointed out... More

We did a 3 hour kayaking trip around the Porcupine Islands with our 11-13 year old children. We were paddling almost the whole time but at a relaxed pace that didn't tire anyone out. The kayaks were easy to maneuver, which was helpful as well. We went out with Travis, who was a great guide and very friendly and helpful... More

Best thing we did our whole trip!! my 18 year old daughter and I did the 11 am to 1pm guided tour with Travis (who was completely awesome and gave us more local info and fun facts than anyone else) on our last day (of 7 days) in Bar harbor and completely loved it. Perfect weather, great instruction and beautiful... More

Our guide was excellent. He provided great instruction and history throughout the tour. This is a well-run business with great staff and reasonable rates. The tour group consisted of first-time kayakers and experienced paddlers. As an avid kayaker, I did not feel that I was being held back by a group of beginners. The first-time paddlers also seemed to be... More

We did the short harbor tour with Travis, so we got to go around one of the Porcupine Islands in the time allotted. It was a calm / warm day so conditions were perfect. Travis gave us all great instructions on staying safe. They provide all necessary equipment and are right in the heart of town. It was a fun... More

Two out of the 5 of us were a little nervous about kayaking, but after this trip, we really love it! Mark, our guide, was great! He was informative - even going out of his way to make sure we all saw the bald eagle - friendly, and fun. We left laughing and joking around. I think this was our... More

My husband and I took the Porcupine Islands Adventure tour. We had never kayaked before so we really appreciated our guide, MARK FLETCHER's, easygoing and clear cut teaching style. He made us all feel safe and confident. It was mostly solid fog the morning we kayaked but we could see the beauty of the islands as we approached them. Mark's... More

I went with a group of six on a Kayak tour of the Harbor and Travis was excellent! He was patience and knowledgeable about where we were going and had awesome tips for what we should do while we were in Maine. Everyone we dealt with from start to finish was great. After our tour was over they even offer... More

Went Kayaking with Travis, he was a great guide and it was a terrific trip. He gave very clear explanation of how to operate the kayak and was able to explain lots of things about the area and spotted bald eagles that he called to our attention.

The booking was easy, the paperwork was quick, the guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Three hours is just the right amount of kayaking - anymore and it would have been too much (we actually tried to go on a 4 hour tour with another company but they were full). I'd recommend this group to a friend and would be... More
