In a state known for the richness of its coastline, the Boothbay Region stands out as one of the best destinations for sea kayaking, with water ranging from the open seas to calm, protected rivers. The Harbor is also home to three historic lighthouses and many public islands that can be yours for an afternoon of exploring or peaceful picnicking.
You can spend an afternoon eye-to-eye with seals and herons amongst the secluded islands of the rivers or set off through the waters of a harbor that windjammers and fishermen have called home for over four hundred years. Whether it be on one of our tours, in one of our rental boats or if you simply want to drop by our shop for an idea on where to paddle on your own, the staff of Tidal Transit will happily get you set up to make the most out of your vacation.
Kayaking is a sport for everyone and NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY! Check out our tour pages for more information or give us a call with any questions you have. For first-time kayakers, we recommend our tandem boats as a stable way to confidently enjoy the experience.
All of our tours are led by at least one Registered Maine Guide who, in addition to being an expert paddler, is familiar with the history and ecology of the area and will introduce you to the landscape in a way that few people get to enjoy.
If you prefer to keep your feet dry, we have bicycles for rent as well. Biking is a great way to get out of the house and onto some of the country roads of Maine.
Make the great outdoors the highlight of your trip to Maine – get outside and enjoy all of Vacationland!
So many wonderful places to stay in the Boothbay Harbor Region
