Amazing time! We were camping in Maine and were looking for a kayak rental company somewhere nearby. This place was an hour and a half from our camp site but so worth it! The equipment is in great condition, and the location of the shop is perfect. My partner and I rented a tandem kayak and did a short paddle out of the harbor to the Burnt Island lighthouse, had a picnic and made our way back. Saw seals in the water by the kayak, which was a great surprise! Love that the company gives you directions and advice on what to do nearby, and that you can do the trip on your own. We're both experienced kayakers so this short trip was just what we were looking for. Also Boothbay is great, has amazing food options, gift shops and museums. We were there in August 2020 - didn't have high expectations, but were so happy to see so many businesses open. Can't wait to come back - currently planning our next trip out to Maine!

Stopped into Tidal Transit kayak and rented two singles for an afternoon paddle. Staff was very friendly and helpful, from start to finish. Provided a good overview of the harbor and suggestions on route. Will definitely go there again on our next visit!

I enjoyed my ride, but was pretty surprised how a novice could get into trouble fast. Tours are cancelled during covid, so folks sign the waivers and go off on your own. This is a working harbor with huge sight seeing boats, working boats, large pleasure craft and the wind can kick up the waves fast. Several islands dot the harbor but getting to them to take a look means crossing the boat lanes. You can play it safe and stay in the protected cove and hang around the pedestrian bridge, it is very pretty and will give some pleasure working your way around the rocks and supports. When guided tours are back, I would feel better about recommending anyone to rent a kayak.

The staff and guides at Tidal Transit are just the best !!!! We have done a number of trips with this group before and have always had a fantastic time. This year we arranged for a camping trip on our own. Tidal Transit provided the kayaks, camping equipment, charts directions, guidance and so forth so we felt comfortable going on our own to stay on one of the coastal islands. It was amazing, spectacular views, an island to ourselves...best experience with the family ever. Navigation was easy after guidance from the Tidal transit folks and with the charts they provided and GPS apps on the phone. Price was very very reasonable and Tidal Transit set us up with everything we needed. Will definitely go again !! Highly recommend this company and the folks that work there !!!
