1. Portland: Sunset Paddleboard Guided Tour
The hour just before sunset is the best time to paddle the waters of Casco Bay. The light is beautiful, the harbor is less busy and the seas tend to be calmer, often creating ideal conditions for paddle boarding. It’s also a great time to spot wildlife like seals and loons. Your tour will start off with a quick stand up paddle board lesson. Then your licensed Maine Guide will lead you on a leisurely paddle along the Portland waterfront. As you venture onto the open waters of the bay you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of the sun setting over the city as you paddle back to the beach. This roughly 2-hour trip is perfect for all skill levels — including first-time paddle boarders. The SUPs we use for our tours are suitable for paddlers weighing up to 250 pounds.
