Harraseeket River Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"If you have ever seen picturesque harbors filled with dinghies, yachts, and sailboats and wished you could paddle through them to get a closer look, Harraseeket River is the adventure you have been seeking! Many people get their first look at the Harraseeket River while dining at the Harraseeket Lunch and Lobster Company adjacent to the Freeport town wharf. Paddlers who visit this favorite eatery will be unsatisfied with the view from the shore and will immediately look for the nearest place to access the water.
Like other tidal rivers, the Harraseeket has challenges like currents, waves, tides, and obstacles that evolve as the tides change. Timing the tides properly will lead to a rewarding trip. When planning this trip, be mindful of water levels, as the recommended launch sites will be accessible only during mid to high tides. You will need to know your level of endurance (as well as your group’s) to ensure being able to move against the current when need be."
