Course Description

A favorite Maine tradition, canoeing is an easy and rewarding way to get the family outdoors, view wildlife and get up close to nature.

After a brief review of canoeing strokes and water safety, we'll hit the water in tandem canoes on a favorite Midcoast lake or river. Along the route, our expert instructors will share insightful tips and techniques learned from years guiding outdoor adventures. This canoeing course is perfect for paddlers of any experience level and fun for all ages – the youngest guests (ages 6-8) are welcome to enjoy the leisurely ride while "duffin" (sitting in the boat's center compartment). Don't miss this chance for a true Maine experience on the water.

All necessary canoeing equipment is included.

Our trips and tours are led by experienced guides who are passionate about the great outdoors and excited to share a new adventure with you. Please join us today.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from our body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
