The delivery at Cape Porpoise by Kayak Excursions was prompt, friendly and helpful. And better kayaks than what we got in Wells the day before. They were slightly lighter, with better seat back cushions and higher end paddles. Made paddling out to the Goat Island Lighthouse a breeze. They provided a dry bag and a laminated map of the islands/harbor... More

Beautiful area, several river and ocean options. The equipment is good and is in great shape. The kids used the sit upon kayaks as stand upon paddle boards. Stefan was super helpful. When the weather changed just before our trip, he called us to suggest a different spot than we'd originally planned, and it turned out great. The kayaking was... More

We rented 2 Stand Up paddle boards for 3 days from Kayak Excursions. I had called around and they had the best prices (plus free delivery) in town, plus we were able to get the boards same day. We had people aged 8-60 boarding and everyone was able to have fun on the boards. Highly recommend!!

Family of five (kids 8, 9 and 11) rented kayaks and spent three hours paddling around Cape Porpoise. We had not been on kayaks before and also did not know the area. Not only did they make everything easy for us, they suggested places to go and we had an amazing day. It could not have been easier. This is... More

Summary: Highly recommended for daily rentals. I was staying at a house in Wells and wanted to paddleboard from the beach. So I called up Kayak Excursions - they delivered right on time the next morning and even carried the board to the beach for me. They also gave me a quick run-down on what to do, which was great....

Took an early trip up the Mousam River. We met Stefan promptly at 7 am, as that was in sync with the tides. We rented a kayak and paddle board. Everything went smoothly from the phone conversations we had setting up the rental, long distance, to meeting him promptly at the agreed upon location and time. The rate for 3... More

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

It was a pleasure to work with kayak excursions in kennebunk port. We rented kayaks and stand up paddle boards during our vacation. We were unfamiliar with the area so we were grateful that Kayak Excursions website provides a good description of the various launch sites. The assistance I received over the phone was wonderful.

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

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.

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
