Overview

An unbelievable paradise of sunsets and paddling. Wild-life and sea life abound, including clamming, guarding terrapin turtle eggs, and long or short course sea paddling. Bringing your own kayak, paddles, and PFDs is strongly recommended. All kayaks must have flotation: bulkheads or flotations bags. There are sit-atop tandem kayaks, paddles, and PFDs, but this will limit which paddling tours you can choose. 1-2 expert sea kayak instructor/leaders will be attending to help. Some paddling experience is required. Rain, wind, current and tidal strength may curtail the lengths of paddles, but will not cancel the trip. Be prepared for "wilderness" level of insect presence in some parts of island at dusk. Trip is co-sponsored by AMC and Sebago paddling clubs. Very limited group size. Preference given to first participants who contact Loretta directly and meet the criteria. Loretta: lorettajbrady@hotmail.com
