Santa’s reindeer get him lots of places, but sometimes, the big guy needs to swap Donner and Blitzen for a standup paddleboard. The annual Santa Paddle encourages paddlers to turn up in Santa suits for a group paddle across Portland Harbor and perhaps a stop on Portland’s waterfront for a hot drink. PFDs and winter wetsuits required.

Muscongus Bay Three-Day Expedition

This trip begins with a short drive north to Muscongus Bay, one of our favorite destinations for multi-day trips on the Maine coast. It offers a prime environment for viewing wildlife, and its countless small islands provide plenty of options for exploring the Maine Island Trail. Muscongus Bay doesn’t attract many large boats due to its lack of big harbors and many shallow ledges, but it’s absolutely perfect for sea kayaking. This trip will depart near Round Pond on the south side of the bay and island-hop north, with possible camping spots including Thief Island, Black Island, Hog Island and Crow Island. You’ll see seals and maybe porpoises, but Muscongus Bay is especially well known as a great place to view birds of all sorts. Delicious and healthy meals are included. We’ll also provide all the kayaking gear, dry bags. Your guide will be customize the route to match the interests and experience level of the group, and they will be happy to offer paddling instruction throughout the trip. The group meets at 9:00 AM on the first day and will return by 4:00 PM two days later. Upon booking you will receive a packet with a more detailed itinerary and packing list. $380 per person.
