If you have your own canoe or kayak, there are several launch sites you can use to access the water. There is limited parking at these sites. Please be aware that the Bagaduce is a tidal river. The tides are quite extreme (10 feet or more) downstream from the bridge at the Bagaduce Lunch. they are much less above that bridge.
Again, the new 2017 BHHT brochure described above provides names and locations of public launch sites along the river. See www.bluehillheritagetrust.org
If you do not own or “carry” your own kayak, Castine Kayak Adventures makes occasional trips on the Bagaduce and provides the kayaks, paddling and safety instruction, and guides to help you “see the sights.” You can reach Castine Kayak at 207-866-3506, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
