Can't believe that I have lived in Scarborough nearly all my life and just took my first kayak trip on the Marsh. It was so beautiful and relaxing and the staff were gracious. Would definitely do this again.

The Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center is small. It has two buildings. One is the main building that has informational material and a small gift shop with T-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, and more, plus it rents kayaks; the other is an educational center. My visit was on...More

Stop in and discover oodles of things about the tides and varied wildlife that depend on them. Rent a canoe and paddle through the marsh. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bug spray and carry along some water and maybe a snack. Its a delight.

Not fancy but that's in part what makes this little place so special. A small building (aka shack:) right on the shores of the largest salt water marsh in Maine. Canoe and kayak rentals with life vest help from either volunteers or summer interns. You...More

This amazing marsh can be explored by kayaks which can be rented at this Audubon Center, located on the road to the Pine Point Beach. The marsh contains an extensive system of waterways which can be explored at high tide.

I hate to rate an Audubon center this low, but Scarborough Marsh as a place to walk was disappointing. We drove 40 mins down from Brunswick because it's the only Audubon center that allows dogs. It turns out the trail is not ideal - it's...More
