Excellent Time!

The people were great; helped us quickly and we were in the water in our tandem kayak within minutes. They even explained to my teenage son how to properly paddle. Very patient!

We enjoyed a small group tour of the Mousam River with Tara as our guide. It was a great 3+ hour kayaking trip in the local area of Kennebunkport. We even stopped for a short picnic provided by our guide of veggies, crackers, cheese, granola bars and apple juice - an added surprise! Tara was knowledgeable with regard to local... More

We rented 3 kayaks and 1 paddle board all $45 dollars each for 3 hours which was a great price! The equipment was all in great condition, we called when the shop opened up to reserve the items for 11:00am and it was a good thing we did as this is a popular place and their equipment moves fast. They... More

Great location for bike & kayak rentals. You can launch the kayak from the river in back of the store and you can bike right to the beach. Friendly staff.

This is a busy place in the right spot of town charging a princely sum to hire an inflatable paddle board. I explored the half day option which is only 3x hours, explaining I was going to Goose Rock's Beach - easily a half hour away. So that'd mean an hour's driving, and then just two hours' use - and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our kayaking trip to Cape Porpoise and the lighthouse. Our guide, Michael, was exceptional in making everyone feel comfortable regardless of their level of experience. The highlight of the trip is spotting a seal that surfaced near our kayaks and seemed to be as curious about us as we were of him.

My husband and I are not particularly athletic but I have always wanted to try kyaking. The staff was very kind and helpful, especially the young man at the dock. While the woman that helped us was polite, he was outstanding. He didn't rush us, encouraged us, and offered help in and out of the kayak. When we got back... More

I had two major issues with Coastal Maine Kayak, and both are really, REALLY important to a SUP or kayak experience. Firstly, the stand up paddleboards the company uses are inflatables. My wife and I had never used an inflatable board before, and we learned that we don't like them one bit. they feel different from rigid boards, they don't... More

Kayaks are promptly delivered and picked up. Service is affordable and reliable . Delivery person is affable. Don't miss out on kayaking and this is a great company to rent from if you don't have your own.

Went on the Cape Porpoise tour on July 5. It was a great time. Justin and Riley were fantastic guides with great knowledge. Tour of the lighthouse was a highlight.
