Aqua-Safari tours will meet at the appropriate shop location, and paddle along our routes on the West Side of Mount Desert Island (All shuttling is provided). Our Aqua-Safari’s are catered to all ability levels. Using the wind, tides, and dynamics of the group to ensure the most enjoyable paddling experience. We feel that a 4 hour tour gives adequate time for relaxation, wildlife viewing, and interpretation from our professional Registered Maine Guide staff. Your Registered Maine Guide will decide which route will be the most enjoyable and safest based on wind direction/velocity, visibility and tides.
