5 day Journey - The Downeast Coast

Though the Mount Desert Island and Deer Isle areas, where we do much of our paddling, are considered "Downeast Maine", the region continues to our east for nearly 100 miles more.  Villages thin out, currents increase, fog is more frequent, and the sparse islands and bold coastline provide an amazing setting for sea kayak touring and skill-building.  Options are too numerous to list, and our route - even the area where we'll choose to paddle - will be determined as we get a sense of the weather and sea conditions.  Join us for a 5-day journey in the best sea kayak touring areas that we've found anywhere.  As with all of our journey's our goal is to increase your confidence, knowledge, and ability to safely plan and conduct trips like this on your own.  From competent navigation, low-impact island camping, and skillful boat handling when the weather throws you a curve ball - it's all on the menu. 

This journey is appropriate for paddlers who are familiar with rescues and basic boat-handling, and are capable of paddling up to 15 miles in a day in 1-2 foot seas, and 10-15 knots of wind.  Those who have not had recent rescue practice should consider contacting us for a Rescues and Bracing refresher in advance of this course.

$980 per person, includes all necessary equipment, and meals (Lunch on Tuesday through Lunch on Friday).    For more information, or to Register, please Contact Us.
