A guided kayak trip can only move along as fast as the slowest paddler.  That is why we use some of the most comfortable, safe, and modern kayak equipment. It is also why we keep our group sizes smaller, allowing us to provide the personal attention and monitoring you would expect from your Registered Maine Guide . We have ten (10) single and two (2) tandem RECREATIONAL LAKE TOURING kayaks that offer roomy cockpits and great stability.  These kayaks range between 10’ and 16’ in length and can accommodate a person weighing between 100 lbs. – 275 lbs. A additional seat pad will be offered with each kayak.

We prefer to put everyone in single kayaks, vice tandem kayaks, for these reasons:

  1. Speed and efficiency
  2. Independence, maneuverability and freedom to go left, right, straight, and backwards
  3. Reduce the aggravation of trying to coordinate paddle strokes
  4. When one person falls in, they are the only person responsible (and wet!)
  5. Learning skills and developing good paddling etiquette is easier

For our younger paddlers (12-15) we have TANDEM LAKE TOURING kayaks. In this situation, we pair the younger paddler with a capable parent/guardian to paddle the kayak together. Most, if not all, of the work paddling in this situation is conducted by the adult.
