Some Options for Groups
GROUP SEA KAYAK TOUR (2-4 hours)
A sea kayak tour is a perfect option for many school groups, corporate groups and wedding parties. It's enough time for your group to receive some basic instruction in sea kayaking and venture onto the waters to explore the rugged coastline of Portland harbor. Your guide will pick a route for your trip that fits with your group's goals and interests. Our aim is to facilitate an experience that will leave everyone in your party with happy memories of paddling on Casco Bay. Consider a 2 or 3-hour tour if your group includes people who don't have much sea kayaking experience. If you think everyone is up for a bit more adventure, ask about a 4-hour half-day trip.
SUP PADDLE AT THE EAST END BEACH (1-2 hours)
Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is a sport that's incredibly fun and fairly easy to learn, but it's still new to many people. Giving your group the chance to try it out in the beautiful waters of Casco Bay could be the perfect experience for them to share together. Our expert staff will start you off with a brief lesson and then take you on a paddle along the coastline of Portland harbor.
GIVE YOUR GROUP A CHOICE: SUP OR KAYAK!
Some people in your group may have a passion for kayaking while others may be dying to try out paddleboarding. Why not give them a choice? You can ask everyone ahead of time which they'd like to try and then we'll split them up when they arrive.
PADDLE TO AN ISLAND PICNIC (3-4 hours)
If your group is up for a longer adventure, consider arranging a paddle to one of the nearby islands for lunch. We'll start off with a basic paddling lesson, and then choose a route and an island destination that fits with the group's experience and the weather conditions. Food is not included with this trip, but we can work with you to find a local restaurant that will provide an excellent picnic lunch.
MULTI-DAY SEA KAYAKING TRIPS
Casco Bay is filled with terrific islands for kayak camping. We offer a range of regularly scheduled overnight trips to these islands and we're always willing to create a customized trip just for your group. You can stay in a yurt on beautiful Cow Island, camp along the cliffs of Jewell Island or island hop for several days all the way across Casco Bay. Visit our Overnight Trips webpage for more information.
