World Within Sea Kayaking

Andy runs a relaxed operation out of a garage on the parking-lot level of the Driftwinds Hotel in Wells, less than a 20-minute drive from downtown Ogunquit. Call him to let him know your interest in renting kayaks, and he’ll have singles or a tandem all ready to go for you when you arrive in Wells. He also supplies life jackets and paddles, and will help you carry the kayaks down some steps to the beach. He’ll point out some rocks off into the distance and suggest to paddle out there to check out the seals that often frolic there. Sure enough, you’ll spot a few friendly seals; a little one will play with you — popping his head above the water, and then disappear whenever you get to close, only to resurface several yards away to check you out.
