On the Water in Boothbay Harbor &
Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
Tidal Transit Kayak Company supplies you with everything you need to experience Maine from its finest perspective.
In a state known for the richness of its coastline, the Boothbay
Region stands out as one of the best destinations for
sea kayaking, with water ranging from the open seas to
calm, protected rivers. The Harbor is also home to
three historic lighthouses and many public islands that
can be yours for an afternoon of exploring or peaceful picnicking.
You can spend an afternoon eye-to-eye with seals and herons
amongst the secluded islands of the rivers or set off
through the waters of a harbor that windjammers and
fishermen have called home for over four hundred
years. Whether it be on one of our tours, in
one of our rental boats or if you simply want to drop by
our shop for an idea on where to paddle on your own, the
staff of Tidal Transit will happily get you set up to
make the most out of your vacation.
Kayaking is a sport for everyone and NO EXPERIENCE IS
NECESSARY! Check out our tour pages for more
information or give us a call with any questions you
have. For first-time kayakers, we recommend our tandem
boats as a stable way to confidently enjoy the experience.
All of our
tours are led by at least one Registered Maine Guide
who, in addition to being an expert paddler, is familiar
with the history and ecology of the area and will
introduce you to the landscape in a way that few people
get to enjoy.
prefer to keep your feet dry, we have bicycles for rent
as well. Biking is a great way to get out of the house
and onto some of the country roads of Maine.
Make the great outdoors the highlight
of your trip to Maine - get outside and enjoy all of Vacationland!
