“Based mostly out of Kennebunk but worth the experience”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Try to make your plans early in the day to get the most out of your experience. The owner is professional and very practical when planning your trip and while giving good advice. Unfortunately tours were not available, only rentals at this time despite the website calendar. It appears that the owner is looking for a new maine guide as the previous one has made a career change. Despite that it is still really worth the rental. We used the stand up boards after only a five minute lesson on our first try. Goose rocks beach in kennebunkport is sometimes choppy but relatively shallow so it is a good place to learn. Great fun.

“The best service delivered to your door”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I have recommened Stephan and Kayak Excursions everyone.... They are always great to deal with,, Delivery to your door, friendly service and knowledable Kayakers to guide you around . They are very dependable and friendly.. they make it so easy to get out for the day either on your own or in a group tour...
You will be happy for sure...when you get out to goat island lighthouse, or shore up to the Ramp for a lunch... try a full moon kayak with a group of friends, life is good to you at that point....

“Great Maine outing”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

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 how we were going to get the kayaks to the water was the best part! I would definitely recommend Kayak Excursions to anyone, and will definitely be using them again next time we plan a trip to Maine!

“What a great experience!”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

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 of the trip based on the tides.The river was gorgeous and we were kayaking for around three hours total which was plenty of time for inexperienced kayakers. The price was reasonable for a family of five, too. I would highly recommend this company!

“Super Easy Kayak Experience”
Reviewed August 11, 2010

I can not recommend this company highly enough. What an incredibly easy experience we had. I called the toll free number and Stefan answered (directly to his cell phone). I arranged to have two single kayaks brought to directly to Goose Rocks Beach for us to tool around in the ocean for the afternoon. When we were done Stefan was there at the set time and took them away. Can't get much easier than that! Stefan was very helpful in recommending which kayak would be better suited for our body types and skill levels. He had the life jackets for us as well. The kayaks were in fine shape. We had a great day on the ocean paddling thanks to Kayak Excursions & Stefan!
