Newcastle Activities

Kayaking in Maine is the perfect active outing to see and explore Maine’s diverse coastline; from rocky cliffs to intercoastal waterways and marshy inlets, there is ample opportunity to explore Maine’s beautiful coast. Just minutes from Newcastle Inn, visitors can choose to spend a leisurely day kayaking one of Midcoast Maine’s lakes and rivers. Or test your skills in more challenging waters with whitewater kayaking. Either way, kayaking in Maine has a little bit of something for everyone!

Two very popular areas to kayak near Newcastle, Maine are either in the Muscongus Bay or the Damariscotta River. The varied ecosystem of the Damariscotta River is one that can be seen through the various vegetation along the river’s bank, numerous bird species, and underwater marine life. Part of what makes Muscongus Bay appealing to kayakers is the bay’s mostly smooth waters and its wildlife-abundant estuaries.

In town kayak rentals can be found at Midcoast Kayak or Main Kayak. Both offer everything from hourly kayak rentals to multi-day trip rentals.
