Welcome to Coastal Kayaking Tours, Mount Desert Island's premier outfitter and the favorite choice of people who want to go sea kayaking in Maine. We feature small groups (no more than six boats per tour) and personalized service, with a professional and fun-loving guide staff that's second to none. We've been leading sea kayak tours for 30 years, longer than anyone else in New England.
We run tours on both the east and west sides of Mount Desert Island, and we paddle the widest variety of routes around Bar Harbor's rockbound coast. We also have a great record of seeing harbor seals, porpoises, bald eagles, osprey and other wildlife.
We’re open for kayak tours from mid-May through mid-October of each year, and we’re conveniently located at 48 Cottage Street in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, gateway to Acadia National Park. Hours during July and August are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. in May, June, September and October.
