A brief paddling and safety lesson segues into three hours of paddling Casco Bay. Kayakers slice through the pristine waters to reach Sister's Island, Sister's Ledge, and Williams Island. Along the way, tour-goers might catch glimpses of harbor seals, porpoises, and sea gulls stealing chips from a mermaid’s bag lunch.
Lincoln Canoe & Kayak
After a summer spent paddling a cumbersome aluminum kayak through northern Canada, two college students founded Lincoln Canoe & Kayak in an effort to design a lighter, more ergonomic vessel. Although ownership has switched hands since the brand's inception in 1959, the company continues to craft lightweight canoes and kayaks from fiberglass, Kevlar, carbon fiber, or feathers dipped in water repellent. From their retail paddle shop in Freeport, they also corral new and experienced kayakers into tour and expedition groups that explore Casco Bay, Deer Isle, and Muscongus Bay. Skilled guides impart their knowledge of Maine's coast and lead paddlers to discover Maine’s myriad waterways, where no river, inlet, pond, or kiddie pool is off-limits.
