Event website

WHEN: Every Tuesday starting May 25th @ 7:30a-8:30a
WHERE: Portland Paddle’s site at the East End Beach (look for our sign)
WHO: Anyone who is confident and comfortable paddling a sea kayak on Casco Bay with a group
COST: Free with your own kayak; $15 to rent one from Portland Paddle ($10 off the usual rate)

In order to safely and effectively run this meetup, we request that you are comfortable properly fitting a PFD on your own, have some sea kayaking experience, and are comfortable re-entering your kayak should you capsize.

This weekly gathering is a casual paddle open to anyone with some sea kayaking experience who feels comfortable and confident on the ocean. This isn’t a guided trip, so everyone is responsible for their own safety, but our staff are happy to share their knowledge of the sport. The group will stay on the water for about an hour and will pick a destination that fits the conditions and participants. If you’ve never sea kayaked before we suggest taking a lesson before joining this group.
