Our guide was excellent. He provided great instruction and history throughout the tour. This is a well-run business with great staff and reasonable rates. The tour group consisted of first-time kayakers and experienced paddlers. As an avid kayaker, I did not feel that I was being held back by a group of beginners. The first-time paddlers also seemed to be... More

We did the short harbor tour with Travis, so we got to go around one of the Porcupine Islands in the time allotted. It was a calm / warm day so conditions were perfect. Travis gave us all great instructions on staying safe. They provide all necessary equipment and are right in the heart of town. It was a fun... More

Two out of the 5 of us were a little nervous about kayaking, but after this trip, we really love it! Mark, our guide, was great! He was informative - even going out of his way to make sure we all saw the bald eagle - friendly, and fun. We left laughing and joking around. I think this was our... More

My husband and I took the Porcupine Islands Adventure tour. We had never kayaked before so we really appreciated our guide, MARK FLETCHER's, easygoing and clear cut teaching style. He made us all feel safe and confident. It was mostly solid fog the morning we kayaked but we could see the beauty of the islands as we approached them. Mark's... More

I went with a group of six on a Kayak tour of the Harbor and Travis was excellent! He was patience and knowledgeable about where we were going and had awesome tips for what we should do while we were in Maine. Everyone we dealt with from start to finish was great. After our tour was over they even offer... More

Went Kayaking with Travis, he was a great guide and it was a terrific trip. He gave very clear explanation of how to operate the kayak and was able to explain lots of things about the area and spotted bald eagles that he called to our attention.

The booking was easy, the paperwork was quick, the guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Three hours is just the right amount of kayaking - anymore and it would have been too much (we actually tried to go on a 4 hour tour with another company but they were full). I'd recommend this group to a friend and would be... More

Boat ride to 5 lighthouses in the area. The announcer had lots of fun and interesting historical anecdotes. Just long enough without being overkill.
