Course Description

Don't miss this exciting opportunity to view the Perseids – one of the brightest meteor showers of the year – by kayak.

After a brief review of kayaking techniques and safety skills, our expert guides will lead you on a beautiful, peaceful night paddle – sharing interesting facts of local history, landscape and wildlife along the way. Together we'll paddle to an optimal viewing spot where we'll raft up and then watch a spectacular celestial display – up to 50-100 meteors per hour!

We'll provide the gear, guides and instruction, so you can focus on an unforgettable outdoor experience with your family and friends. Sign up today!

Our trips and tours are led by experienced guides who are passionate about the great outdoors and excited to share a new adventure with you.

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.
