Beach Goers And Kayakers Love Our Location! We Are Near Ogunquit Beach And On The Ogunquit River!
Our unique Ogunquit River location provides multiple ways to reach area beaches and this beautiful river, which runs behind the barrier beach. The aerial image at right shows Ogunquit Beach and the Ogunquit River and river beach just opposite the end of our property. At the left, you see our location marked, then see the river all the way down to the back of main Ogunquit Beach, out to the Atlantic ocean entrance.
It is a fun experience to take a kayak or across the river to the river or ocean beach. You can rent one in our lobby. We have single kayaks only. Going directly across to the beach is a short distance for paddling, and this part of Ogunquit Beach is uncrowded, as it is a long way from the parking lot and trolley stop at the end of Beach Road.
You can also paddle up or down the river for some distance. Be aware that the river is tidal and has current which can be strong at times. See an Ogunquit tide chart here. Plan your trip if you go up or down the river. You don’t want to be caught down stream a long distance away with the current against you, unless you are an experienced and physically fit paddler. You are of course welcome to bring your own kayak(s).
Launching a kayak is best done at higher tides, although it can be done any time, but will require you to carry or drag the boat a longer distance to reach the water. You might want to wear water shoes. Use of our kayaks is entirely at your own risk, and you will be required to sign a waiver and take personal flotation devices (life jackets) with you, which we provide.
