Kayaking Linekin Bay Maine

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Verani Realty

A perfect July day for kayaking Linekin Bay in East Boothbay Maine.

While on a 4th of July camping trip to Boothbay Harbor Maine, we decided to do some kayaking.

 Jay and I set out at about 10:30 in the morning with a goal of reaching Ocean Point and then paddling back to our put in at the Murray Hill boat launch in East Boothbay.

High tide was at 1:31 pm and we knew we'd be able to get in a few hours of easy paddling. 

Neither one of us had dipped our paddle in water since last summer!  I think we're classic fair weather paddlers.

Ann...Someday you'll need to try it. Maybe in a calm lake to begin with. The ocean changes in an instant and even though Jay and I are fully equipped I still like to hug the coast line.

Maggie,

Thank you so much. It was an awesome day on the water.  You are very intimate with nature when in a kayak, we've paddled a few feet from Sea Lions and Porpoises.

wow...I hadn't even grasped the possibility of doing that.  Of course with a motor boat, no matter how small, it would be impossible to do that.  It sounds even more impressive now.

Ines...Thanks so much! I bet you kayak in a sit on top...I want one of them to beat around in some of our pretty lakes. When we were in Florida we rented a sit on top...they were cheap ones and I had a hard time maneuvering around in it. It was wicket wide!!!  My friend has a nice sit on top and he loves it!

How long was that trip?  It looks like many miles.

I love your "Take a Tour" button!

Years ago I had an "experience" and vowed never to get in a boat without a motor.  Thank you for providing the map, photos and tour so I don't have to do that.  Virtual Kayaking, LOL.

Chris, it was probably 7-8 miles round trip. The return leg is much quicker. Rolling in with the wind and tide makes for a fun ride. One must be careful in rolling seas as it can be a little nerve racking.

Thanks Joan. Have you ever tried kayaking? With so many lakes in NH there is plenty of opportunity.

Mariana....No water! I don't think I could survive! 

Chris...Jay did the map and made me that cute button.  I understand, once you have a bad experience it's hard to put it aside. I'm glad you enjoyed the VT!

Jay...It sure seemed like a longer kayak trip!

Hi guys,

The tour was great but leaves me wanting for a kayak of my own. Perhaps we can get one before BarHarbor or at least by next summer. You know what they say "there's nothing like the real thing baby". Beautiful pictures.

Thanks Neal. I think you need to get back into a boat and dip the paddle. You'll love it!

Nope...not a one!

I think they were too busy hosting that summit down in Kennebunkport. We were about an hour north of Kennebunkport.
