Welcome to the Maine Association of Sea Kayak Guides and Instructors (MASKGI)
The rocky, forest-lined shores of Maine offer kayakers a dream come true. With more coastline than California (over 3,400 miles), you will find innumerable bays, coves, inlets, and beaches to explore. Our waters provide a challenging paddling environment, with frigid temperatures even in the summer, fog, huge tidal ranges, and pronounced ocean currents.
We welcome Registered Maine Sea Kayak Guides from Maine and other states, as well as non-guides who would like to be involved.
