Course Description

Enjoy a full day paddling and a full day riding on this fun and exciting tour along Maine's picturesque coast. The first day will kick off with either biking or kayaking. On your biking day, you'll ride through the rolling hills and farmland of Freeport and Brunswick at a leisurely pace with stops to take in the coastal scenery and refreshing ocean air.

On your kayaking day, our accomplished instructors, who are also Registered Maine Guides, will explain paddling terminology and boat fit. Afterwards, they'll guide you along the island dotted coastline of Casco Bay in our stable, two-person sea kayaks. You'll have a chance to see seals, osprey, and eagles.

After the first day of activities, you'll head back to our oceanfront campground for your one-night stay. Our campground is equipped with large tents, cots, sleeping bags, hot showers and many other amenities. A lobster or steak dinner will be served that evening at the oceanfront pavilion, followed by dessert, a campfire and a quiet, relaxing night under the stars. The next morning you'll wake up to a hearty breakfast before heading out for a day of riding or paddling.

The biking portion of this tour is shuttle-supported for your convenience. All necessary paddling, biking and camping equipment is provided.

NOTE: If you are interested in a customized version of this trip (adjusted lengths, dates, etc.), please call us at 1-888-615-9979. We are happy to discuss custom trip options 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.
