Paddling at Recompence is an unforgettable experience. The calm waters of Casco Bay are perfect for beginners and experts alike. Launch from our new dock facility at the mouth of the Little River, and within minutes you are gliding along the shoreline and seeing Maine at its best. Circle around Googins Island, a protected osprey habitat, and you may be lucky enough to see the resident osprey couple catch fish for their young. Paddle out along the peninsula, or “neck”, and take in beautifully colored rocky ledges framed by forest of oak and pine, and you may glimpse the area’s resident harbor seals or a majestic bald eagle. Hardier paddlers may enjoy exploring the Harraseekett River. At full tide, you may wish to take a short trip up the Little River to explore the unique beauty of the salt marsh.
