Welcome back for a second adventure with Coast Encounters! I’m glad you had another very unique experience. Any yes, adults enjoy it just as much as kids do. See you next time.
I did the tour with my two teenagers, and we all really enjoyed it. Carol is an excellent guide and incredibly knowledgeable, and she made the tour really fun. It was fascinating to see and learn about the tide pools and to get into the...More
I’m so glad you mentioned the slippery rocks (and seaweed). This tour is not for everyone because of it. Thanks for pointing this out.
The highlight of our vacation was an outing with Coast Encounters. We found and held crabs, snails, and lobsters. Both our 7 and 8 year olds loved it and were excited the entire time. I cannot recommend it enough.
Thank you. Hope to see you next year!

One day those invasive species may end up on your dinner plate! If you can’t beat them, eat them!!!🦀🦀🦀❤️ I’m glad you enjoyed the adventure.
We had a wonderful tide pooling experience with Carol. We explored tidal pools around an island in Kennebunkport that is only accessible during low tide. Our seven and eight year old children loved learning about the tidal plants and animals and how to properly handle...More
Thanks Nicole! It was a magical day out on the island.
We highly recommend tidepooling with Carol as a great family outing during a beach vacation! We vacationed in Ogunquit for several years and although we looked closely, we only found hermit crabs. Then we started going tidepooling with Carol. We have gone out with her...More
There's nothing better than having returning customers each year. Thanks for being one of those families! See ya next year!

Thanks Gray for detailing some of the highlights of the adventure for others to know before booking. I’m sure your description will be helpful to them. Fun was had by all that day!
This was one of the most unique, awesome, and fun filled learning experience I ever had! As a 19 year old, I learned so many new things about tide pools that I never knew! We found lots of lobsters, snails, hermit crabs, a baby sea...More

Went on a tide pool excursion with a group of friends in their late 20s/early 30s and had a blast! Carol did a fantastic job educating us on tide pooling and the best way to interact with the ecosystem and wildlife. Our group found tons...More
