kayak boothbay or acadia

Leaving for trip to Maine next week. Have 3 boys ages 17, 13, 6 that would like to kayak. We will be in both Boothbay Harbor and Acadia Park at some point in the trip. Are there any suggestions where we could kayak and which place. Wasn't sure with the 6 year old--places that allow that young. Any help would be great!

We have kayaked out of boothbay harbor a number of times over the past 4 years.

The harbor and many of the islands, bays and "River systems" are fairly protected from the direct ocean, so it is a very interesting area to kayak, with many islands and lighthouses to explore and fantastic scenery..but the seas and winds are fairly mild.

Acadia is a spectacular place to visit, but I think the kayaking would be much rougher and more challenging.

Would definitely recommend Boothbay harbor.....

There is a rental / guide outfit in Boothbay Harbor called "Tidal Transit" we have gone on a number of trips with them and they are really friendly and helpful...they have a website you can check out under tidal transit that should list many of the available trips and prices..

Have a great trip !!

Can't thank you enough for your reply!! We'll definitely go with Boothbay. It's so hard to know when you've never been somewhere before. Thanks again!
