Það sem verður gert

The Stonington archipelago has many route options, so after a safety briefing, we'll have a look at the chart together, and keeping in mind the weather and tidal currents, come-up with a plan for the day. Usually we'll paddle some version of the 'Archipelago Arc' a route strategy that enables us to paddle an 8 to 12-mile loop among the islands, while staying within 2-3 miles from our launch. We'll paddle about an hour at a time and take breaks on islands along the way, looking for a good lunch spot. Some islands have idyllic pocket beaches, while others have great granite slabs, erratic boulders and hiking trails with stunning views. If the group is in the mood for a swim, we can stop at a freshwater quarry pond for a refreshing (warmer than the ocean) dip. If desired, we can pause to learn or refine paddling skills.

Staðsetning

We'll launch in Stonington and head into the Stonington archipelago, a Mecca for sea kayakers with some 60-80 islands, many of which are public and part of the Maine Island Trail. We'll craft a route based on the group's interests and the weather; each island is individual as is every trip.

Michael and this experience were amazing. Michael was extremely knowledgeable about the area, kept the pace appropriate for our skill level and age, and thoughtful about our wellbeing and enjoyment. Highly recommend to all. You’re going to get wet, sore and sunburned, but also blown away by the beauty of this group of islands and Michaels knowledge.

This was a wonderful time. Michael is a very experienced guide. I felt very safe with him. He knows the waters very well and caters the trip to your abilities. I had zero kayaking experience, but never felt like I was overwhelmed. I would use him again if I find myself in Stonington.

Michael went out of his way to schedule our trip to meet our needs. When he couldn't do it, he arranged for his wife Rebecca, an experienced guide also to take us. She was incredibly patient and informative. My family had a great time!
