This is a lovely open harbor, with open land and forest edging the watery expanse. Castine Kayak Adventures (tel. 207/866-3506) offers full- ($110) and half-day ($55) sea kayak tours departing from Dennett’s Wharf restaurant. Both trips are appropriate for those without experience; a brief intro will get you started with this graceful and often meditative sport. You’ll often spot wildlife, such as bald eagles, harbor seals, and ospreys.
