Course Description

Flying, nesting, feeding – there's nothing quite like observing birds from a kayak. Don't miss this unique birding adventure, fun for locals and visitors alike.

After a brief demonstration to review basic strokes and techniques for paddling a recreational kayak, our outdoor experts will take you on a fascinating and leisurely paddle for an up-close look at birds, plants and wildlife. Along the way, you'll also learn more about the area, bird migration, bird identification and more.

Our instructors love the outdoors and can't wait to share their passion with you. Come paddle with us and discover your inner birder.

All necessary paddling equipment is provided.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion. †Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
