Back to The Good Life (Nearing Farm)  
Kayak back into simplicity to the homestead of Helen and Scott Nearing on Cape Rosier in Penobscot Bay. The Good Life Center, known as Forest Farm, is dedicated to extending the Nearings' profound and timeless message about how to construct a positive self-sufficient lifestyle. We will tour the Nearings' organic gardens and their last hand-built stone home, after having a vegetarian lunch on the seashore.
Tour 10 a.m. to mid- afternoon.

Bagaduce Lunch Paddle 
Explore the tidal effect and reversing falls in the estuarian waters of the Bagaduce River. Understand how to maneuver your boat through moving water paddling on the incoming tide up the Bagaduce past islands and seal colonies to the Bagaduce Lunch where you can buy your choice of lunch and ice cream! We'll hop on the conveyer belt of the ebbing tide and ride the current back to Castine. 12 kt miles.

Circumnavigation of Cape Rosier

The British Canal Traverse
This journey is for the intrepid explorer who is willing to follow in the footsteps of the Native Americans and British Soldiers who came before us using this passageway to decrease distance and avoid Dyces Head Light.  We will slog through the marsh at the highest possible tide and carry into Wadsworth Cove from Hatch's Cove, where we will explore the entire shoreline that surrounds the small neck of Castine.            
$60 w/lunch 3 - 4 hour trip    (tide dependent) 

Circumnavigation of the 
Northern End of Islesboro

                   This full day adventure will introduce you to the importance of planning  a trip with the tides. We'll  cross from Castine to Islesboro exploring cliffs, beaches and coves. A short portage at high tide will bring us to the western side of the island with a spectacular view of Camden. We'll stop at beautiful beaches and explore the unique glacially molded rock formations at the northern tip of the island, Turtle Head, before crossing back to Castine's lighthouse.
