Paddle & Pedal Belfast Maine
Join us for a full day of adventure in Belfast, Maine. We will start the day with a three hour sea kayak tour of Belfast Harbor, followed by a three hour bicycle tour on the backroads of Coastal Maine.
We have several options for sea kayak exploration. Crossing the channel we have the option of paddling down the Passagassawakeag and exploring the tidal river. The river name is of Native American origin and is believed to mean “a sturgeon’s place” or “a place for spearing sturgeon by torchlight”. We also have the option of paddling into Penobscot Bay and exploring the coast toward Moose Point or Little River. Mornings are the best time to experience the beauty and tranquility of Belfast Harbor.
After lunch we will meet at CG Bikes to begin our bicycle tour of the incredibly scenic back roads of the Mid-Coast region. The ride will explore the small inland towns, of central coastal Maine. We will average 20 miles during this three hour tour. Route will be determined by wind and group ability. Our options vary from very hilly and more strenuous to more moderate rolling hills.
We will meet at the public boat launch for our sea kayaking journey and CG Bikes on Lower Main Street for our bicycle tour.
