Androscoggin Discovery 3 hour Sea Kayak Tour
This picture shows a family sneaking behind one of the islands on the lower Androscoggin River. I had let the children choose the direction that we would go and sometimes we just stopped and played in the water.
We meet at 8:45am 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, Belted Kingfishers, Osprey, Common Crows and fish will be jumping often.
After stopping for our snacks brought from home for safety, stretching and perhaps a swim, 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, you must bring a filled water bottle that is at 24 - 32 ounces, bring favorite snacks, and wear a mask whenever we are on shore.
