Our Weekly Group Paddles on Tuesdays and Thursdays Are Back
Kayaking on Tuesdays and SUP on Thursdays
Once again we’ll be hosting our early morning group paddles during the summer of 2023! If you’re a kayaker or stand-up paddler looking for a chance to get on the water with others, please join us.
SEA KAYAK TUESDAYS: 7:30am-8:30am
SUP THURSDAYS: 8am-9am
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so you can be ready to paddle a few minutes before the scheduled start time
It’s free to join with your own kayak or SUP. If you need to rent one from us we are offering a discounted rate of $20.
This year we are requiring reservations for anyone renting a kayak or SUP for our weekly paddles. Click on the buttons on this page to make a reservation. You do NOT need a reservation to join if you are using your own vessel; you can just show up.
These paddles are led by our staff, but they are not guided trips and you should not join if you need instruction or assistance in order to participate. Please consider taking one of our lessons or joining a tour if you are new to sea kayaking or SUP. Everyone is ultimately responsible for their own safety. That said, our staff are happy to share their knowledge of the sport and offer tips and support as you paddle. The group will stay on the water for about an hour and will pick a destination that fits the conditions and participants.
WHEN: June – August; 8am Sea Kayak on Tuesdays, 9am SUP on Thursdays (arrive early)
WHERE: Portland Paddle’s site at the East End Beach (look for our signs near the kayak racks)
WHO: Anyone who is confident and comfortable paddling a SUP or sea kayak on Casco Bay
COST: Free to join with your own vessel; $20 to rent a kayak or SUP from Portland Paddle
A note about weather: If we need to cancel a weekly paddle due to weather conditions we will post an update on our Facebook page.
