Paddling to an Island 3 hour Sea Kayak Tour
Due to Covid-19, this event is limited to 6 people. Alice's Awesome Adventures is COVID-19 Phase 1 Certified and is taking the proper precautions to run all trips. Participants must bring and wear face masks as well as bringing their own sun screen, bug repellent, water, snacks, and lunch. All equipment will be disinfected before and after each use.

We meet at 8:30am to get our boats set for us, put our life jackets on, and learn about paddling and paddling safety on the coastal waters in Casco Bay. After launching, we paddle at the speed of the slowest boat as a tight group near shore for safety. We could see Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles, many different types of sea gulls and maybe a harbor seal.
After stopping for your own snacks, learning about lobstering or perhaps oystering and some of the local flora and fauna, and stretching, we'll pick up all that we brought and start our trip back. We'll take a different route so that we can discover more. Routes change based on tides, weather conditions, and our group.
There will be many picture opportunities during our trip. Beginners of any age are welcome and children must be with an adult. Solo and tandem sea kayaks are used and chosen by your guide. You may request one or the other but conditions will make the final decision.
We paddle in most weather conditions but NOT when they are unsafe such as thunder and lightning storms, extreme high winds and waves. Your guide will contact you about moving the trip to a different destination or rescheduling.
Wear quick dry clothing (no cotton), closed toed water shoes, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and bring a wind breaker or polyfleece in case it is cool. Due to COVID-19 precautions, you must bring a filled water bottle that is at 24 - 32 ounces, favorite snacks, sunscreen, bug repellent, and a face mask.
