Course Description

Paddle among the stunning islands of Maine, surrounded by marine wildlife, working lobster boats and lovely scenery on this kayak camping adventure. This trip is offered in partnership with Maine Coast Heritage Trust, which protects special places up and down the coast of Maine, from Kittery to Lubec. With the help of many partners, including L.L.Bean, they conserved and now care for The Goslings, our island base camp for this trip.

Your trip will begin at the L.L.Bean Paddling Center on Casco Bay. From there, you will paddle a stable kayak to a picturesque island for a picnic lunch.

You'll then kayak to the island base camp, your home for the night, where we'll serve up a traditional Maine lobster or steak dinner. When it's time to turn in after gazing at the shimmering stars, you'll spend a restful night in a comfortable tent and sleeping bag.

Fueled by a hearty breakfast, you'll launch your kayak for a daylong expedition to other scenic islands, edged with jutting ledges where seals are often seen warming themselves in the sun. You'll travel back to the Paddling Center.

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 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's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
