Midcoast Kayak

Midcoast Kayak is open for the 2022 season almost every day until October 6th from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (closed Mondays and Tuesdays and September 10th)). Due to a shortage of staff we will need a one day advance notice for all reservations and appointments. Reservations can be made online or by calling our store at (207) 563-5732. All of our programs will be running until we close including tours, lessons, rentals, deliveries, and sales.

We welcome you to the beautiful coast of Maine, where the trees meet the sea, and wildlife abounds. While in the Midcoast Maine area why not enjoy a sea kayak tour on Muscongus Bay, or improve your skills with kayak lessons? Our retail store is located in the quaint village of Damariscotta. The “kayak shack” is the place to go to reserve a tour or kayak rentals, and to gear up on essential kayak and stand up paddleboard equipment. We are authorized dealers of Old Town, Dolsey paddle boards, Riot Kayaks, and Boreal Design. So the yard is filled with boats for sale and the store has a nice selection of paddles, PFD’s, spray skirts, dry bags, safety gear, and you name it.

Midcoast Kayak offers a variety of kayak, paddleboard, and canoe rentals as well as tours and lessons in the Midcoast Maine region.

Most of our tours leave from Muscongus Harbor, a quiet harbor two miles north of Round Pond village, from Damariscotta onto the Damariscotta River, or from a location of your choice. Our boats and gear will always be ready for you so all you have to do is arrive, get geared up, and enjoy a tour led by a Registered Maine Guide. Lessons are taught by Registered Maine Guides on the Damariscotta or on the bay. You can also rent boats and paddle boards out of Damariscotta or Muscongus Bay and launch immediately, or load them on your car to take them where you want. Take advantage and explore the many beautiful coastal waterways, ponds, rivers, and lakes of the region. And don’t forget, we can also deliver to the location of your stay. Have fun!
