How to Rent a Kayak for the Peaks to Portland Swim
Every year Portland Paddle opens by 6:00 AM on the day of the Peaks to Portland race so that people who are renting our kayaks have time to paddle to Peaks Island well before the race starts. We suggest giving yourself about an hour to paddle to Peaks Island, though it takes many people much less time than that.
Portland Paddle is staffed by a talented team of folks who are passionate about paddling. Many of our staff members from previous years will return this summer, but we're also seeking candidates for several new positions for our 2018 season, which runs from late May through September.
This month's Paddle Talk is a conversation with Joe Guglielmetti, a kayak guide who grew up in Cape Elizabeth and now lives on Munjoy Hill in Portland. Joe just returned from a kayaking expedition in Fiji. He began guiding for Portland Paddle in 2013.
