Our kayaks aren't one-size-fits-all: neither are our courses. Maine Island Kayak Co. designs custom courses and trips for you. We work with you to discover your interests and paddling style, and build a learning adventure to expand your skills.
A note on our courses for the 2020 season:
MIKCo has decided to amend our approach to providing our customary general public sea kayaking programs. We are being cautious and not listing courses for open enrollment. We will continue with Covid-Safe Boat Sales and small Private Instructional Courses and Trips. Please see our article: MIKCo's Y 2020 Season.
March 23 - 28, 2021. What happens on a Women’s kayak trip that doesn’t happen on a typical trip? Some will never know! Gals, if you enjoy the company of other adventurous women, we’d love to share the magic with you! To learn more, contact Liz.
Maine Island Kayak Co. can outfit your personal paddling trip. Outfitted trips are self-supported: your group carries all required food, water, and equipment. Groups may opt to utilize our power boat shuttle for transfer of equipment and food.
Our Registered Maine Guides and BCU and American Canoe Association (ACA) trained coaches and instructors have paddled thousands of miles on various seas over the last 30+ years, and have helped hundreds get out on the water. We believe our progressive formats will tune you into this great sport: taking you beyond simple rescues and basic maneuvering to making rewarding decisions, and enabling you to achieve your goals in the ever-changing environment.
