L.L.Bean – Two-Night Maine Island Kayak Camping Trip
August 6, 2020 @ 8:00 am - August 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Paddle among the stunning islands of Maine, surrounded by marine wildlife, working lobster boats and lovely scenery on this kayak camping adventure. This trip is offered in partnership with Maine Coast Heritage Trust which protects special places up and down the coast of Maine, from Kittery to Lubec.
Your trip will begin at the L.L.Bean Paddling Center on Casco Bay. From here, you will paddle a stable kayak to a picturesque island for a picnic lunch.
You’ll then kayak to the island base camp, your home for the next two nights, where we’ll serve up a traditional Maine lobster or steak dinner. When it’s time to turn in after gazing at the shimmering stars, you’ll spend a restful night in a comfortable tent and sleeping bag.
Fueled by a hearty breakfast, you’ll launch your kayak for a daylong expedition to other scenic islands, edged with jutting ledges where seals are often seen warming themselves in the sun. You’ll travel back to our base camp for another fantastic meal and a restful night’s sleep.
On day three, you’ll have more paddling adventures, seeing more wildlife and remarkable scenery. Enjoy a picnic lunch before returning to the Paddling Center.
