National Park Sea Kayak Tours

Ecological tours by trained Maine Sea Kayak Guides on the quiet western shores of Acadia.


Welcome to National Park Sea Kayak Tours!

National Park Sea Kayak is dedicated to providing its guests with:

  • quality sea kayak Eco tours.
  • touring the remote “Western Side” of Acadia off the beaten path.
  • a perfect safety record.
  • owned and operated by an Acadia / Mount Desert Island native for 25 years.
  • Registered Maine Sea Kayak guides leading all trips.


Where will we go?

Your registered Maine Guide will decide which route will be the most enjoyable and safest for you based on wind conditions, visibility, and tides. We paddle the remote “Westside” including; Western Bay, Blue Hill Bay, and occasionally Somes Sound. Some tours are round trip, starting and stopping at the same location. Most are one-way (wind at your back) stopping at a different ending point.

Depending upon the route chosen, we will be paddling a total of 5 to 6½ miles on a half-day trip, with a fifteen to twenty minute break part way through. Actual time on the water is approximately 2½ – 3 hours for half-day trips. National Park Sea Kayak is a mobile kayak company traveling via van to the remote “West Side” of Acadia on every paddle. This off-the-beaten-path philosophy results in less boat traffic, no motels, no cruise ships, but great wildlife sightings…..
