At NPKT your enjoyment and safety are our primary concerns. To insure that this happens, we limit each trip to a maximum of Only Six Tandem Kayaks. This Small Group Concept allows us to give you more personal service and attention. Your Registered Maine Guide will take you close to shore at a relaxed pace which increases the chances of seeing wildlife. Remember, NPKT is the outfitter that does not launch from the front of a motel or in a busy harbor. Check around, ask questions, and see why NPKT is the preferred ecological kayak outfitter on Acadia. Also, view our reviews on Trip Advisor.


Sea Kayak Specialists …Do one thing, do it well. Sea kayaking is our only business. Small group sizes (6 – 12 people) allow us to provide quality tours at a relaxed pace. All tours include a brief stop on a remote Beach Island.
