Schoodic Sea Kayak Retreat

Location: Winter Harbor, Maine
Dates: Sunday, September 25, 2022 - Saturday, October 1, 2022


This five day event features the East Coast's finest sea kayaking and highlights a chance to try the amazing wooden kayaks by Nick Schade in the conditions they were designed for.  

On the east side of Frenchman Bay, away from the bustle of Bar Harbor, lies a largely forgotten piece of Acadia National ParkSchoodic Point. Exposed to the open swell, with rugged rocky shorelines, steep storm racked cliffs and spectacular scenery, it is hard to imagine a finer body of water to explore in a sea kayak.

Under the expert leadership of  experienced sea kayaking guides you will discover why you love kayaking all over again. They will enable you to relish the feeling of being in the environment in a way only available in a small human powered kayak. Nick Schade and Gerry Polinsky, assisted by Barb Todd, Joey Schott, and others, will lead you along amazing shore lines, across beautiful harbors, to paddle around spectacular islands where you can either bask in the glory of it all, or expand your skills while exploring rock gardens, sea caves, and off shore ledges.
