Kayaking in Blue Hill Bay

Self-Guided Tours

The protected Blue Hill Harbor offers a safe, tidal, saltwater experience. While it can get choppy if the wind picks up, for the most part it is more akin to a saltwater lake than the open ocean. It is dotted with several harbor islands that are exposed during low tide and only just pop above the surface during high tide.

  • Always stay within 50' of shore
  • Never paddle in winds over 15 MPH
  • Do not venture out in white caps
  • Leashes must be worn on paddle boards
  • Only use TAS equipment from dawn 'til dusk
  • Request Instruction


Our rentals are very popular therefore reservations are highly recommended. Please let us know where you are staying, (cottage name if available) when you will arrive and your departure date. We insure your recreation equipment is delivered to your cottage the day you requested and we will pick up all the equipment on the agreed date. It’s that easy. We do the delivery and pick-up and you have fun!
