Our Most Popular Custom Experiences

Sea Kayak Tour in Portland Harbor

2 hours

A sea kayak tour along the scenic Portland waterfront is a perfect option for many groups. Two hours is enough time for your group to receive some basic instruction in sea kayaking and venture onto the waters of Casco Bay and enjoy views of lighthouses, seabirds & seals and historic landmarks.

SUP Tour in Portland Harbor

1.5 hours

Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is a sport that’s incredibly fun and fairly easy to learn, but it’s still new to many people. Give your group the chance to try it out in the beautiful coastline along the Portland waterfront. Our expert staff will start you off with a brief lesson and then take you on a brief paddle, pointing out wildlife and historic sights along the way.

Sea Kayak Tour to Fort Gorges

3 hours

Fort Gorges, an abandoned 19th-century granite fort on a tiny island, is one of the most popular and exciting paddling destinations in Casco Bay. The trip starts off with a basic paddling lesson and then involves a paddle through Portland harbor and across the open waters of Casco Bay to a small beach by the fort’s entrance. Then the group explores the island and the fort on foot before paddling back.

SUP & Sea Kayak Combo Experience

2-3 hours

Some people in your group may have a passion for kayaking while others may be dying to try out paddleboarding. Why not give them a choice? You can ask everyone ahead of time which they’d like to try and then we’ll split them up when they arrive. However, the two groups (kayakers & paddlerboarders) generally are not able to paddle together to the same destination because they will move at different paces.

Kayak Tour at Crescent Beach State Park

4 hours

A kayak or SUP trip at Crescent Beach State Park gives you the chance to paddle along the shores of one of the state’s most beautiful beaches in Maine.  The state park is located in the town of Cape Elizabeth, a 15-20 minute drive from downtown Portland.

Multi-Day Sea Kayak Expedition

2+ days

Casco Bay is filled with terrific islands for kayak camping. We offer a range of regularly scheduled overnight trips to these islands and we’re always willing to create a customized trip just for your group. You can stay in a yurt on beautiful Cow Island, camp along the cliffs of Jewell Island or island hop for several days all the way across Casco Bay. Visit our Overnight Trips webpage for more information.

So good we did it twice! Team building trip to the fort!

If I could give Portland Paddle 6 of 5 starts I would! We brought a corporate group of 25 for the Fort Gorges Sea Kayak Tour with Melanie, Alex and Peter. They were super knowledgeable and personable! We had such a good time, several of us came back the next day for a sunset tour with Whitney! She was equally as impressive! Thank you for two memorable experiences on the water!

Terrific Corporate Outing Custom Sea Kayak Tour with Portland Paddle

I took a group of 8 out for a 3 hour private tour. Henry, our guide, was patient with those who were new to paddling, kept close eye on us, and was mindful of the schedule we needed to keep, all while keeping up general conversation out on the water. We got caught in a good headwind coming back, but we worked though it, and we all talked about how fun the trip was. Tandem kayaks were the way to go! The scenery of Casco Bay is outstanding, and the memories will stick with all of us.

A wonderful team bonding adventure! Private Multi-day Sea Kayak for our Senior Sports Team!

First and foremost safety was first. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the islands, the history was so detailed and interesting. Our guide was so patient with our group of 7 senior women. The food was delicious, her recipes will be forthcoming. Thank Portland Paddle for an awesome experience. I never would have imagined I could paddle so far in 1 day AND in the ocean. A true accomplishment for an “almost” 70 y/o. Thank you again!

Sweet paddling on Casco Bay. Family Kayak Tour

This was the best paddling we've done in a long time. The guide was great, the conditions were calm and the equipment was in really good condition. We did the Family-Friendly tour for 2 hours which was perfect for older folks like us. We highly recommend the folks at Portland paddle!
