2. You can contact us and request a custom inn-to-inn tour. If you provide us with your name, available
dates, and the size of your group, we will aim to arrange a tour for you. For
example, 4 - 8 people is an ideal group size for a custom tour. Alternately, if
you are a party of two, we will aim to find one or two other couples (of
similar kayaking ability) interested in an inn-to-inn tour on the same dates.
Full Service Custom Tour: Water Walker provides equipment, guide
services, and shuttle service (if needed) for going inn-to-inn.
Partial Service Custom Tour: Water Walker provides some
combination of equipment, route suggestions, and land support -- i.e. shuttle
service to back to your vehicle at the end of your tour. (Appropriate for more
experienced paddlers who don't need a guide to accompany them).

suggestions about particular inns, while our guests make the actual

rates are $220.00 a day for two, or $340.00 a day for four.
For a non-guided
tour, rates are variable, depending on the location of the trip and the amount
of driving involved. Rental of our sea kayaks is $35.00 - $50.00 per day and
includes all paddling gear. Either way, our guide support provides paddlers
opportunity to do a one-way trip (rather than turning around midway through)
and thus to see more of Maine's great coastline and to take advantage of
