Fort Gorges Sea Kayak Tour

Fort Gorges, a mid-19th-century granite fort surrounded by water, is one of the most fascinating spots in Casco Bay, and it’s only accessible by small boat. This three-hour trip is the best way to combine the experience of sea kayaking on the Maine coast with exploring one of the region’s most exciting historic landmarks.
