Porcupine Island Adventure

What do porcupines have to do with kayaking? Well, the waters off the shores of Bar Harbor are peppered with a group of islands called the Porcupine Islands. Most of the Porcupine Islands are owned by Acadia National Park and are uninhabited. Explore the waters off the shores of Bar Harbor with your sea kayak guide. Paddle around the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman Bay. Our 3-hour Porcupine Island Adventure departs from our private docks several times a day. These trips include instruction, equipment and are led by Licensed Maine Guides. Our guides will provide the necessary instruction to get even the first time kayaker paddling within minutes, while fine-tuning your skills during the trip. These trips are a great value because our 3-hour tours average two hours of paddling time. We can provide you with more on-water time than any other outfitter in the area due to our private waterfront launching facility. Harbor Seals, Bald Eagles and Guillemots are common sightings. The views of Acadia National Park from the waters of Frenchman Bay are incredible. The Porcupine Islands vary from cobblestone beaches to sheer ledges.

We encourage you to compare our 3-hour Porcupine Island Adventure with our competitorís half-day tours. The amount of paddling time that we offer canít be beat. Remember, you are paying to paddle, not get a bus tour. If you would like a bus tour, we recommend taking a ride on Oliís Trolley after you go kayaking with us.
