It’s tough to visit Maine and not want to venture out on the water, and Freeport’s Lincoln Canoe and Kayak makes some of the best boats to make that impulse a reality.

Lincoln’s Kevlar and fiberglass canoes and kayaks are known for being lightweight, durable, and easy to maneuver. They’re made using a unique vacuum-bag resin infusion process called Paddle Lite that laminates the entire vessel in a way that, according to Lincoln, makes for the best strength-to-weight ratio. This means that not only do the boats perform well on the water, they’re also easy to transport on land.

Lincoln has been perfecting its canoe and kayak craftsmanship for 50 years and also rents boats and runs group excursions and courses from its Freeport headquarters.

If you find yourself passing through Freeport, stop by Lincoln Canoe and Kayak’s retail shop, where you can check out the boats made on-site, see them tested in Lincoln’s pond, and chat with the knowledgeable staff about how to make best use of their vessels to enjoy our Rocky Coast.
