Description

Head to the waterfront near Downtown Portland as dusk washes over the city and indulge in a sunset stand-up paddleboard tour. With the golden evening light pooling all around you, drink in the rugged beauty of the Maine coast and keep your eyes peeled for furtive harbor seals and soaring ospreys.

A few short blocks from Portland's hip East End neighborhood, meet up with a licensed Maine Guide who outfits you with a sturdy stand-up paddleboard, a paddle, and a dry bag for transporting your camera. Once you're equipped with the necessary gear, participate in an orientation while standing on solid ground.

Beginners pick up the basics, including how to hold the paddle as well as tips and tricks for maintaining balance. Seasoned enthusiasts also benefit from the tutelage of their guide who has ample experience paddling along the craggy shoreline in this section of Southern Maine.

Following the lesson, the harbor is yours to explore. The sands of East End Beach lead straight into the ocean, allowing you to push effortlessly into the bay. Practicing dipping the blade of your paddle into the water like you learned moments earlier. Finally, relax on your board and see the pale moon rise in the sky as the buttery orb of the sun sinks out of view.
