The meandering waters of the Saco River are great for first time kayakers! The average depth is 3 feet deep and along the way you can stop and picnic at one of the many sandy beaches or play on the rope swings. All trips are self guided unless noted.
We offer a 5 and 7.8 mile day trip, which both end back at our office, so there is no need to wait for return a shuttle. Our most popular five mile trip starts upstream at a private 11 acre beach and ends at the Saco Canoe Rental Company landing on the river. Along the way you will find sandy beaches, mountain views and rope swings. Both trips offer small riffles to make things exciting.

All kayaks feature: cup holders, foot pegs, adjustable seats and an access hatch. Our 14 ft touring kayaks feature dry storage and are better for longer paddles or area lakes.
