Natural-History Tours

Come explore the biological diversity and island jewels of Penobscot and Muscongus Bays with our naturalists. On this tour, nature will be our focus as we use the sea kayak as our vehicle to discover the diverse marine and bird life in and around the nutrient-rich waters of the Maine coast. We will meet at the Boat Barn of the Landings Restaurant on the Rockland waterfront (near the public landing unless other arrangements are made) and from here, leave for our destination for the day. Rather, your tour will unfold as we choose our path based on the richness of the wildlife we experience and our curiosity to discover and observe what we find. We may see seals on ledges, osprey flying overhead, and eagles soaring. Bird migrations may treat us to waves of warblers or sights of shorebirds along mudflats and floating rockweed. Opportunities to see various birds and plants abound. We will stop on an island for a delicious picnic lunch and to explore the fascinating inter-tidal zone and plants of the shoreline. This is a wonderful trip for anyone interested in the natural history of the Maine coast.
