A one-of-a-kind musical adventure 

TIME: 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM
COST:  $65 per person (includes guided kayak trip, live music, snacks, kayak and paddling gear)

If you love hearing live music and like the idea of paddling to an abandoned and overgrown Civil War-era fort, this is the sea kayak trip for you! This unique combination of kayaking, live music and history is easily our favorite trip and we're really excited to bring it back for the 2016 season. Acoustic Paddle is an outdoor adventure that involves paddling to Fort Gorges for a performance by a local musician surrounded by the granite walls of the fort while enjoying gorgeous panoramic views of Casco Bay and the Portland skyline. 

The trips start at 3:30 at the East End Beach. Portland Paddle's guides will gear everyone up and provide some paddling tips before the group heads out into the bay to explore the islands of Portland harbor on our way to Fort Gorges. We'll look out for seals, sea bird and other sights as we make our way across the open waters of the bay. 

After some paddling, we'll arrive at the Fort to settle in for a set of original music and some picnicking. Every Acoustic Paddle features a performance by a different talented local artist. The fort provides a perfect setting for live music and the acoustics are incredible. After the music winds down, we'll paddle back to the mainland just before darkness settles over the harbor. 

Give us a call at 207-370-9730 if you're interested in learning more or making a reservation.
