Overview

3 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

Tasting oysters just harvested from the ocean is significantly different and better than eating them at an oyster bar. Freshness counts! This is a sea kayaking tour that teaches you the basics of sea kayaking on land before launching at Mere Point in Brunswick to visit a working oyster farm in NW Casco Bay!  After visiting the oyster farm, we'll stop on an island for a stretch break, tasting, and shoreline exploring. Learn about aquaculture in Maine and how it improves the health of the bays.

Sea kayaking is an easy, fun way to sight see from the water.  We often see different kinds of sea gulls, cormorants, black and mallard ducks, eider ducks, great blue herons, snowy egrets, osprey and bald eagles. If we are lucky, we will see a seal.

Paddlers of all ages will love exploring Casco Bay in this protected, scenic, historic area! No experience is needed. Single and double kayaks are used on this eco-guided tour by a Master Maine Guide.

What's Included

  • Professional Master Maine Guide
  • Local Guide
  • Sea kayak (single or double), paddle, life jacket and safety gear
  • Snacks - Fresh Oysters on the half shell for tasting with sauce choices.
  • Gratuities

What To Expect

Itinerary

After meeting at 8:45am to get outfitted and learning how to paddle our sea kayaks, we carry our sea kayaks down to the water and launch. We will paddle as a group in NW Casco Bay to one of these two oyster farms: Mere Point Oyster Company or Love Point Oysters based on weather conditions and tides.

While heading to the oyster farm we'll be looking for wildlife, lobstermen hauling, and learning about the history of the area. Photo opportunities are everywhere and your guide will take
