Какво ще правите

We'll meet in Deer Isle village, at the causeway between Northwest Harbor and the Mill Pond. After a quick safety briefing, we'll paddle out the harbor toward one of the islands past the mouth of the harbor. Seals are sometimes spotted swimming or on a distant ledge, where, on a quiet evening, their voices carry across the water. We'll watch the sun go down over the Camden Hills across Penobscot Bay, and return to the harbor in the twilight.

COVID -19: Starting June 26, visitors who have not quarantined or who are not from NH or VT must complete a Certificate of Compliance form, indicating negative COVID-19 test results. Google State of Maine COVID restrictions for more.
Other things to note
This trip is for anyone, regardless of previous paddling experience; I'll give instruction as needed. Most of our boats best for medium-sized paddlers, but the tandem and canoe can accommodate most sizes. We won't be landing anywhere until we return to the launch, shortly before dark.

I've been guiding and teaching on the Maine coast since 2010, mostly around Stonington (the southern end of Deer Isle). I wrote the guidebook 'AMC's Best Sea Kayaking in New England,' as well as a number of articles in sea kayaking and outdoor magazines, and will soon have a new book out about a two-month sea kayak journey my wife Rebecca and I took along the Maine coast. I've usually worked for other outfitters, but now mostly guide and teach on my own.

Къде ще бъдете

The village of Deer Isle is connected to Penobscot Bay by mile-long Northwest Harbor. On summer evenings, the Harbor frames a stunning view of the the sun setting across the bay, over the distant Camden Hills. We'll paddle at a leisurely pace past the shoreside cottages out to Dow Point, and then circle Heart Island as the sun begins to set.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful sunset paddle with Michael! Very nice equipment provided and a lot of focus on safety as it is a working harbor. Michael is a pro!

First off, it's a team -- Michael Daugherty and his wife of 29 years (as of September 10, 2019) Rebecca Daugherty. Secondly, not only are they both certified guides and certified in Wilderness First Aid, Rebecca is a marvelous artist in multiple media and an illustrator, while Micheal is a published author of a widely read guide and many articles, with another book in progress being illustrated by Rebecca. Michael took us (an older couple, I'm 81) for a 2.5 hour leisurely evening sea kayaking experience tailored to our abilities and endurance. He was superb in providing interesting information in a relaxed, informal and personal way. We cannot recommend them more highly! Don't miss this experience if you're in the Acadia region...

10/10, such a worthwhile experience! Michael is very experienced at kayaking and it shows. Him and his wife Rebecca were both very helpful in helping us fit the kayaks to our bodies so they were comfortable, and he even did a quick lesson on paddling and what to do in case we flipped over. It was initially a bit windy, so Michael did warn us that it could be a little more difficult than usual to paddle out, but the wind calmed down and it was an ideal evening out on the water. Sunset was beautiful, and I would certainly do this trip again.

The experience shared with Michael on the canoe was just the most amaizing thing we have done during our week end in the area. He was so kind, patiant and explained us a lot about all his passion of paddle! Sunset was gorgous and highly recomended to all level of paddling!! (first time for us and we'll do it again!!) Thank you Michael!!

Our family of four did two sea kayaking outings on this vacation, and Michael's was substantially better than the other one. We covered a much greater distance, and saw more interesting things. Because it was cloudy and foggy, we didn't get to see the sunset, but the clouds and fog had their own charm, and we did see a bald eagle perched on a tree on a small island, and some harbor seals, and beautiful coastline. Michael was patient and kind and knowledgeable and everything you would want a guide to be. We would all go on this outing again.
