Kayaking the Maine Coast: A Paddler's Guide to Day Trips from Kittery to Cobscook by Dorcas S. Miller

This comprehensive guide from Kittery to Cobscook is an indispensable resource for anyone who launches a kayak in Maine's coastal waters. Paddlers of all skill levels will find it useful for planning simple day trips to multi-day expeditions.

Dorcas Miller has explored every inch of Maine's rocky coast, and she describes it all in 34 detailed chapters. Here you'll find maps, diagrams, illustrations, and photographs; trip suggestions; launch sites; information on tides and currents; chart and map references; safety considerations and danger zones; key points of interest; and information on bird and sea life.

A separate chapter on the distinctive natural history of the Maine coast provides information on glacial geology; native birds, plants, and mammals; and the ecology of estuaries, salt marshes, sand beaches, and mudflats. Miller also includes guidelines on responsible low-impact paddling--how to avoid disturbing nesting birds, endangered wildlife, and fragile shoreline vegetation--in order to preserve this natural beauty for generations to come.
