Port Clyde at the tip of Saint George Peninsula is a beautiful place to kayak and paddle board - a quiet bay dotted with scenic offshore islands. We went on a kayak tour with owner/guide, Brian, who was a fantastic guide. While enjoying the pristine scenery and lots of wildlife, Brian told us much of the history of the area and pointed out homes owned by famous artists and other noteworthy residents. It was a great tour and a nice drive from nearby Rockland. Next time we'll return for a Full Moon paddle, or the bioluminescent starlight tour where the sea glows as you glide along - neat.

This September, my wife took our young kids (2 five year olds) on a kayak tour with Cody. He was very helpful and informative- they loved the experience. In addition, Cody let us borrow (no charge) some kids' life vests for a separate trip later that week- very generous. We look forward to taking another tour with him next summer. Highly recommended.

If you want to experience the beauty of Maine from the water, don't miss a boat or kayak trip. Of the companies we've encountered, our experience with Port Clyde Kayaks was one of the best. We signed up for a half-day excursion, led by the personable and very experienced owner, Cody. It was wonderful! Wildlife sightings included seals, porpoises and eagles. The nearby Port Clyde General Store is a good spot to pick up snacks although Cody offered protein bars and water when our group stopped for a rest at a small island mid-way through the trip. A nice touch and most welcome as we worked up an appetite paddling for several hours. My friends, husband and I agreed that this was one of the highlights of our time in Maine.

Recently got to do an afternoon kayak tour with Cody. We had perfect weather which made things easy. The gear is in great shape and I loved the boat he selected for me. Good performance, fit, and I wanted to take it home! We saw several eagles, seals, various sea birds, and more. He knows the area very well so the history and local culture information was fantastic. I would highly recommend.

We love to kayak but sea kayaking can be intimidating esp on the coast of Maine. So we wanted a guide and Cody was terrific. We were the only ones on this Sunday sunset sea kayaking tour of the harbor at Port Clyde. Proprietor Cody has terrific lightweight but very stable kayaks with very responsive rudders that make the kayak a delight to maneuver. And he gave a quick but excellent tutorial on the most efficient way to paddle - we learned something new. Cody is also very knowledgeable about the local islands' history. The evening was so calming and magical. We had a perfect sunset and spotted lots of birds including osprey and Eagles.
Give yourself extra time to get there as this is further out than we imagined but the ride is lovely and the experience was worth the extra drive time

We thoroughly enjoyed the adventure and highly reccomend it!
