Sea Kayak Family Tour

The slower pace of this tour is perfect for families with younger children. We’ll take it easy, leaving plenty of time for tidepool exploration, kayak skill-building, and paddling fun. Only children 7 and older can paddle with Portland Paddle – exceptions might be made for mature 6-year-olds on private departures. All children younger than 12 must paddle in a tandem kayak with an adult.
