To Register

Phone us at 207-766-2373 during the day
Please leave us a message if we're out of the office!

The earlier you call us with your interests, the better chance we’ll have of securing your desired date. If we’re on another line or out paddling, we will return your call. Group size is limited. If it is the last minute, try us anyhow, you never know. To secure your reservation, Maine Island Kayak Co and Maine Island Kayak Outfitters require full payment by MC, Visa or check for events costing $200 or less. For events costing more than $200, we request a deposit of 1/2 the total cost for the event, with the balance due 2 weeks prior to your program.

“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.
Its substance reaches everywhere; it touches the past and prepares the future; it moves under the poles and
wanders thinly in the heights of air. It can assume forms of exquisite perfection in a snowflake,
or strip the living to a single shining bone cast up by the sea.”
