On our 2 Year anniversary, my boyfriend and I had decided to visit Kennebunkport for a three day weekend. We decided to try Kayaking for the first time as it looked fun and adventurous. We made a reservation for the Cape Porpoise Kayak Tour a week in advance over the phone. We arrived at about 11 am for the 11:30 tour and got fitted for life jackets and things.

Our instructed Gregg was wonderful. He is so friendly and personable. He is also a great instructor and very helpful. As it was our first time, we were floundering a bit in the beginning but after a while we got the hang of it. We stopped at Goat Island and got to go inside the beautiful lighthouse. What a view! Then we stopped off on another island for a break and a snack. We forgot to bring our own snacks but with him Gregg had a whole spread. There were crackers and cheese, pretzels, big Tupperware of fresh strawberries, fruit snacks, and sparkling cider all on top of a cute checkered table cloth.

This was truly one of our best experiences of the weekend. It sparked a love for Kayaking in me and I couldn't wait to find a place to do it at home in New Jersey. Gregg even took pictures of us and posted them up on his website so we could show our friends and family how we did.

Thank you for a great experience!

First time kayaking. Couldn't have asked for better introduction than have Theresa set us up at the shop and Gregg take us out for an excursion to Goat Island.

Gregg is a seasoned Kayak expert who was very attentive to making sure we were enjoying ourselves safely. He gave interesting and humorous commentary on local points of interests.
He happily took photos which we can access later on his website.

Coastal Maine Kayak - personnel were extremely knowledgeable and helpful with our day trip out to Goat Island. Shop has everything you could need for a day on the water. We could not have asked for a better day!
