Course Description

Join our guides for a three-and-a-half-hour, stand up paddle tour down the Harraseeket River. Touring by stand up paddle board offers a better vantage point for viewing this beautiful waterway, its shoreline and abundant wildlife.

Our experienced guides will start the tour with a short paddling demonstration. You'll have the opportunity to try your board and get comfortable on it. You'll then paddle along this waterway, starting at the source of the river and paddling down it and out towards Casco Bay. Since the Harraseeket River is tidal, you'll ride the outgoing current, winding through beautiful salt-water marshlands teeming with wildlife.

At one time, this river was central to Freeport's shipbuilding industry. Our launch spot is where the great masts of the Royal Navy were floated down the river for shipment to England. Our take-out point was the primary port for the area until the rise of railroads.

You'll also have plenty of opportunity to see herons, eagles, and osprey as well as other aquatic species. Your guides will share their knowledge of the local area and suggest other places you might want to explore. Since this is a point-to-point tour, our shuttle will pick you up at the take-out point and transport you back to our paddling center.

All necessary paddle boarding equipment is provided.

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.

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 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'll provide you with the necessary equipment.
