Try an ecological sea kayak tour of the remote ‘West Side’ of Mount Desert Island. This off-the-beaten-path adventure is great for viewing wildlife (harbor seals, harbor porpoise, bald eagle, osprey, cormorant and other sea birds) away from big boat traffic and island development. Half-day, full day and sunset paddles are available from May to early October. Professional sea kayak guides provide all equipment, instruction and transportation.
