Peaks Island offers a dramatic venue to explore Casco Bay’s outer islands by kayak.

Peaks Island and the nearby archipelago of islands provide us with protected waterways, short but lively crossings, and the challenge of rocks and surf. We love to take paddlers out to the lighthouses, open ocean, and dramatic cliffs nearby. We've been operating for more than 30 years on Peaks Island because of the opportunities it offers to truly experience the Maine coast. About half of our guests every year are repeat customers. Find out why!

"Excellent experience! A must-do."

kayak tour from Peaks Island

HALF-DAY TOURS

Book Now

Half-day tours are approximately 3 hours on the water and are suited for athletic beginners. $70 per person in single kayaks, $65 per person for double (tandem) kayaks.

From an island to islands: explore the waters of Casco Bay by kayak.
When you arrive on Peaks Island, we’ll walk over to our beach and review our plan for the day. We’ll introduce you to paddling effectively, get fitted for the boats, cover necessary instructional and safety issues, and get on the water by late morning.  We’ll explore protected waters and passages to island retreats, pocket beaches and maybe visit Fort Gorges, an 1860’s granite block Civil War era fort. The route may vary depending on weather and group interests. You will be asked to sign Maine Island Kayak Outfitters Waiver or Maine Island Kayak Outfitters Minor Waiver prior to your tour.

Half-Day tours meet at 9:45am. Take the 9:15 ferry from Portland. Guides will meet you, paddle in hand, when you arrive on the island. See our Info page for more information.

SUNSET TOURS

Book Now

Sunset tours are a bit over 2 hours on the water and are not destination oriented. $70 per person in single kayaks, $65 per person for double (tandem) kayaks.

Finish off your day with a 2 hour tour gliding along and watching the sunset over Portland.
Casco Bay can be a busy and exciting place in the afternoon, but in the evening it often calms down.  The motor boats head back to port, the lobstermen are long gone, the wind tends to die down, and the wildlife takes over.  Paddling by kayak from Peaks Island, you’ll see the lovely colors of the sky reflected in the water.  It’s rare on the east coast to be able see the sunset over the water.  Being almost 3 miles east of the mainland has it's advantages: on Peaks Island we are treated to the "big show" almost every night! You will be asked to sign Maine Island Kayak Outfitters Waiver or Maine Island Kayak Outfitters Minor Waiver prior to your tour.

Sunset trips meet at 5pm. Take the 4:30 ferry from Portland. Guides will meet you, paddle in hand, when you arrive on the island. See our Info page for more information.

We land on hidden pocket beaches, uninhabited ledges and islands. With over 200 islands, a rich geological and human history, and tremendous variety of paddling, Casco Bay is a great area for experimenting with your readiness and skill set before adventuring further. You will asked to sign Maine Island Kayak Outfitters Waiver or Maine Island Kayak Outfitters Minor Waiver prior to your tour.

OUR GUIDES

Our guides are accomplished kayakers and naturalists who truly enjoy the sport and outdoor lifestyle - and the fantastic outer island kayaking venue we are lucky enough to have right at our Peaks Island doorstep. Lead guides always have multi-year guiding experience. All our staff completes rigorous training, and our requirements for lead guides far exceed state requirements. Most importantly, our staff really cares about your experience. We are proud that many of our guests become lifelong paddlers! 

OUR TRIPS and LOCATION

We keep our group sizes small - well under the state mandated ratios - to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Each trip is tailored to the interests and abilities of our guests, tempered by the dynamics of the weather, the bay and nearby open ocean. Having an archipelago of islands as our base gives us lots of options for the day's adventure. Casco Bay is a world-class kayaking venue; starting your trip from Peaks Island allows you closer access to the best it has to offer. Our guests are often repeats and sometimes come several times during their stay in the area. Find out why!

OUR FLEET

Our fleet of high end expedition-style single sea kayaks accommodates all sizes and abilities.  Kayak hull shape matters - different boats are suited to different people. We are passionate about giving you the best experience in your kayak as is possible. All of our sea kayaks are sit-in, have rudders or skegs, and at least two bulkheads. Our kayaks are a minimum of 16' long so you can enjoy the “glide” of kayaking and travel further, faster, and with less effort. We also have stable, sturdy double kayaks available if you prefer to paddle tandem.

Review

As I told Joe, my adventure eyes are always bigger than my nerves! I was so excited about the ocean kayaking but as he started orienting us, I got a little nervous that it would be too much for my landlubber husband and me. But Joe immediately put us at ease - offering reassurance, many helpful suggestions, and explained each step of the trip. Never in my wildest dreams did I envision, kayaking past a bird-filled island, right up to a lighthouse, and even enjoying a few minutes on a quickly disappearing island. While the tide was reasonably low, we were able to stretch our legs, take a quick dip, and get some great photos before we had to abandon our little island to the ocean tides. Joe was so patient with us and I am most grateful. He's an amazing guide and, after my initial fear, I was confident he could handle any situation which arose for our group. I credit his knowledge and advice with my marriage surviving the "divorce kayak" (tandem kayak). Thanks, Joe, for an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Joe will make you laugh, teach you a whole bunch about paddling, safety, navigation, currents and a lot more about the environment and local wildlife.

We booked last minute, and it was a great choice. Joe had us in a small group, and he took care of a variety of experience levels. We ended up on a trip to the open ocean, a lighthouse, dramatic cliffs, and more. There was great instruction in kayak technique. Even better, Joe offered insight, local history...great stories. We'd join Maine Kayak again without hesitation.

We were very impressed with the "little" things that were explained on crossing shipping lanes, reading flags, etc.

It really made it interesting to learn things that we wouldn't have gotten without a guide.

Started out with a guided full day tour the first day and then rented equipment for the following 2 days. The equipment was high quality and Joe, the owner/guide, was very helpful with local area information and pointers. We are experienced paddlers (IPP3 / BCU3*) and have paddled all over the world. We really enjoyed all the days we had on the water, with beautiful scenic nature and lots of wildlife. Can warmly recommend come paddling in Casco Bay!

Our guides did a fabulous job showing us some beautiful parts of the harbor. Growing up in Maine, I was taught about the forts in the harbor but never thought I'd be able to walk around Fort Gorges. We saw a seal, two active Osprey nests (6 birds total), and an Eider. We couldn't have had nicer weather. Our lead guide and owner of the enterprise (sorry Sir, your name has escaped my vacation memory) was skilled in his craft and entertaining in presentation. This was a highlight of our 10 days in Maine.

Exploring Gorges Fort added a bit of history, as well, to the natural beauty of the day. Our guides, Jim and Lee , were outstanding and we enjoyed every moment of the tour. They and Joe provided a good orientation before departure and made sure everyone was equipped to enjoy the experience.

Joe and team were excellent in ensuring we had a great experience. The equipment was clean, comfortable and safe. The group was split into 2, which meant a personalized tour where we could choose where to go. Joe - the owner- was a calm, charming, attentive and vigilant guide. He made sure everyone in the group was comfortable with what we were doing, while keeping his eyes on the water for the sea conditions and possible wildlife sightings (we saw porpoises, a seal and lots of birds - some even rare). Joe shared interesting stories and facts, and also took time to advise on good paddling techniques. Top marks for a great trip! Can thoroughly recommend Maine Island Kayaks. I'll be back next time I'm in the area.

Feedback

Nothing to improve really. You made it very easy - from the clear instructions on the website and upon booking, meeting us with a smile straight off the ferry, the bathroom stop beforehand, the safety talk and preparations before getting in the boats, and the good care during the tour. The only comments I can think of are 1) I couldn't find anywhere in the info what time it was likely to finish (although it's advertised as a half day, so I could make an assumption). 2) You spoke quite fast during the safety talk. Talking a little slower may help people take in the information better.

We took a half-day trip (about 2.5 hours total) from Peaks Island over to Fort Gorges and back by a different route. Ideal weather, calm conditions, safe guiding, and a good time was had by all. The fact that you have to take the ferry boat over to Peaks to join the trip is *not* a drawback, since you get the fun of the ferry boat ride and a chance to visit the shops and eats on Peaks. Overall, a great way to get on the water!

We had a big group (16), but Joe, Mitch and Zeke seemed to have no problem keeping us together and offering instruction as needed. Joe’s the head guy, and gave an initial briefing to outline the trip and stress safety. Nice boats, too. A very enjoyable 3 hours.

Feedback

The bets kayaking instruction I ever got had people practice paddling while onshore - to get the feel of using your core, rather than arms, to do the work. You might consider using a few minutes upfront to do that and help people avoid next-day soreness.

Review

We were a family of four and this was an excellent activity to do as a family and a great way to see different parts of the bay and other small islands. We enjoyed the whole experience from the time our guide met us at the Casco Bay Lines drop off point to the very end. The guides were professional, informative, fun, and very enthusiastic about what they do. We then enjoyed getting some lunch and took a bike ride around the island. A great way to enjoy Peak Island for the day.

This was a great trip! Knowledgeable guide, a unique experience, and a solid upper body workout. What more can you ask for on an outdoor adventure?!

Great tour! We had to reschedule at the last minute due to inclement weather and were thrilled with the kayak adventure. One of the highlights of our trip!
