Trip Planning Package

Let us Plan Your Self-Guided Sea Kayaking Trip!

Quick Details

Our trip-planning service pairs you with an expert Maine sea kayaking guide to help you plan a trip that’s customized just for your group. And it comes with 15% off all gear rentals, and 10% off gear purchases. 

Planning a successful sea kayaking trip on the Maine coast requires lots of knowledge of the local environment. It also involves handling lots of logistics, including finding the right campsites, getting the necessary gear, accessing the best launching and landing sites, parking vehicles overnight and arranging any needed transportation or resupplies. Failing to have a good plan for any of these details could make your trip a lot less enjoyable and potentially more costly. 

Our trip-planning service is designed to ensure that your trip is planned by somebody who knows how to create the best experience possible for you. As they create a custom trip they’ll take into account your experience level, your interests, your budget, the group size, any gear needs and any specific regions of the coast you’d like to paddle. Every trip we create is unique. And since Maine has thousands of miles of coastline and hundreds of islands for camping, the possibilities are endless.
