Course Description

Over the course of two days, you will enjoy a pair of unique paddling adventures that feel worlds apart but are only separated by mere miles. One day will take you on a leisurely canoe trip down the Androscoggin River, one of Maine's premier interior waterways, with its deep history in the logging industry and its current status as a major recreational hub. After receiving instruction in canoe-stroke basics, boating handling and safety, you will follow our expert guides downstream as you take in the beautiful scenery, enjoy a riverside picnic, and try to spot bald eagles, blue herons and other wildlife. Your day of sea-kayaking starts right beyond your tent site at our Paddling Center, where you will launch into Casco Bay for a tour of its rocky shores and rugged islands. Our Registered Maine Guides will have you well-prepared to head out and explore the coastline, famed for its breathtaking beauty, stopping on one of its many islands for a picnic lunch. While your days will be filled with unforgettable activities on the water, your night at the campsite will be just as memorable. Gather as a group for a lobster or steak dinner, then relax around the campfire to recount your adventures over s'mores. Everything in true Maine fashion. All necessary kayaking, canoeing and camping equipment is provided.

Participant Agreement Policy

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

*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 your 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 is deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
