My family and I keep coming back to Maine Island Kayak at least two to three times each summer and fall. We are not expert kayakers by any means and so it's great to have Joe be our guide. He is very expert, and thorough in prepping everyone for our one day adventure. As we have done this a few times, Joe has adjusted the overall difficulty and challenge to our skill level which makes for a great time. Then there's being out on the ocean and the islands. We have been to an abandoned fort, a difficult to reach lighthouse ( this was the challenge part) , a couple ship wrecks and quite a few islands. We have seen ospreys, seals, and these very odd birds called cormorants.
This is my favorite way to get away from the stress of my day to day life becuase it's just you and the ocean. Getting to the far side of Peaks Island gives you a complete view of open ocean which I love.
After your trip, I highly recommend having some ice cream at the corner shop near the ferry landing. All the restaurants on the island are within a 3 minute walk from the landing and the ferry terminal.
Even if you have never kayaked before, you will not be disappointed.
