Sea Kayaking With Whales:Campobello Island
Location: Castine Kayak Adventures
Sea Kayak where whales migrate passing between two nations, Canada and the United States. We'll spend two full days kayaking exploring the dynamic coastline of Campobello Island, stepping back in time among the surrounding islands where the art of weir fishing is still practiced and where 20 foot tides expose a unique intertidal zone and produce amazing currents. Whales follow the flow of food through the "feeding grounds" as the locals call it, just off the beautiful Campobello Lighthouse. Stay longer and take time to visit Roosevelt's Estate and gardens by bicycle along the quiet roadways through the island.
Day One: Arrive at your cabin, enjoy the beauty of the island. We'll meet in the evening to prepare for the adventure ahead!
Day Two: We'll explore the rugged shoreline of Campobello Island graced by eagles, porpoise and fish bubbling from the water as we ride the tide to Campobello Lighthouse at low tide. We'll step back in time paddling among the working vessels of Head Harbor, and it's remote boundary island and possibly see fishermen seine fishing and whales following the fish.
Day Three: We'll launch early to paddle through the myriad of the outer islands and through the "feeding grounds" in search of whales and porpoise, with lunch on a remote island.
