Exploring Casco Bay by Kayak

Exploring Casco Bay by Kayak

I've been a Mainer all my life and had never explored Casco Bay quite like this.  I have to admit Kayaking was the way to go...

Whether you're a tourist or lived in Maine all you life, I highly recommend a tour with Maine Island Kayak Company.

Who ever thought you could actually explore in the famous Fort Gorges!
