Kayaking at the shores!
There’s almost no better way to go out and enjoy the ocean than to go kayaking. To feel the wind and the waves while paddling along the coastline is an incredible experience. Here at Searsport shores we have both Tandem and Single Kayaks, and there’s so much to explore with them!
If you go right from the campground you can paddle to Moose Point State Park. Many people choose to stop here and eat lunch, hike a little, or bring the kids to the playground. It’s a great place to enjoy our natural world and to rest from your paddling.
A little farther past the park, you can see some awesome rock faces overhanging the water’s edge, surrounded by seafoam from the ocean waves. This was one of my favorite parts of kayaking; I was even greeted by a loon!
To the left of the campground you can head into the town of Searsport. You can stop to walk around the town, maybe get a bite to eat, and then head back out into the kayaks. For the more experienced kayakers, you can head to Sears Island for the day and paddle around the island.
The bay offers a unique ocean kayaking experience, and the waves generally do not pick up until late in the afternoon, so even the most inexperienced kayakers can go out in the morning and have a great time. Next time you visit us make sure you try out the kayaks!
