Private 6 hour New Meadows and Malaga Island sea kayak tour
We'll meet at 8:40am at a public boat launch, get outfitted for our paddling trip and load our boats with snacks and lunch. Then we'll launch about 9:00am and paddle south by Cundy's Harbor to Bear Island to Harbor Island to Wood Island. After snacking in Carrying Place Cove, we'll head north along the inside passage and stop at Malaga Island for lunch and discovery.
On the island we will be walking on an uneven woods trail/path after checking in at the kiosk providing a historical timeline of the Malaga Colony by Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Look at the pictures below.
Master Maine Guide Alice will be giving an interpretive tour of the island helping you to imagine how our native americans used the island, how the Malaga Colony islanders lived, and then how the island is used and not used now. The walking is not difficult, but it is not for someone that can't easily walk uneven surfaces or at least 1.25 miles unassisted. At the southern end of the island, we will have a break, before walking back to the northern beach on a different path.
You will want to wear: quick drying clothing, closed toed shoes that can get wet, a hat and sunglasses, sunscreen. You will want to bring: a small backpack, non-aerosal bug repellant, at least 32 ounces of water, snacks, a windbreaker or poly fleece. Some people choose to change their water shoes to light hikers. You can bring a camera. Your guide Alice will be taking some candid photos during the trip.
The trip will run unless there are unsafe paddling conditions such as thunderstorms or extremely high winds or waves, in which case we will work to reschedule you. We do paddle in light fog, rain, and sun. Tandem and single kayaks will be used during the trip and the guide will assist you. Sometimes we do switch boats during the trip for group safety and maximum fun.
