It was great launching from Peaks. All levels of kayakers were accommodated. The leader was knowledge about the area and about kayaking. He was laid back and helped make the trip enjoyable, answering questions and talking but also leaving room for us to just enjoy...More

Maine Island Kayaks is definitely the way to see Portland and the many islands surrounding it. Joe was very knowledgeable about the areas currents, tide, air conditions etc. to keep everyone safe and happy. I would definitely recommend this outfit for any outing, can't wait...More

The half day on the water with Jim was great. He's not only knowledgeable about kayaking but also the history of the surrounding sites. Time and money well spent on a leisurely adventure in Casco Bay.

Hi Karen I remember your trip well. I'm sorry you were disappointed. You were part of a group of 12 and there were two Registered Maine Guides on the trip - each guide is licensed to take out 12 kayakers at a time, but we...More
