A spectacular introduction to kayaking the Maine coast. This trip is tide-dependent. At low tide, Chauncey Creek and the channel through the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge are impassable. Aim for the top of the tide when starting. Portions of this trip are also exposed to the full force of the Atlantic Ocean as well as a section of the Piscataqua River (the third fastest-flowing navigable river in the United States), so be mindful of wind, waves, and current before committing to open water.
