    Enjoy the beautiful Southern Maine coast in one of our top-notch sea kayaks. Our complete rental service allows you the use of paddle, spray skirt, personal flotation device and car top carrier to get your kayak where you want to go. The Casco Bay area and all its islands provide the perfect places to do a day, weekend, or even a whole week paddle. There are many islands with dock facilities, stores and lodging. Others are peaceful and quiet so you can enjoy the solitude.

"Having sea kayaked much of the New England coast, I thought I had seen it all. However, Ring’s Marine Service suggested a paddle around Cousin’s Island and the Maine coastline views I found took my breath away."
- Mike Travers, Burlington, VT

     Rings Marine Service is on a very sheltered section of Casco Bay. Many of our launching sites are on the Harraseeket River. Our customers have many paddling options in and around the coves, islands, ledges and other interesting features of our coast line. You will have the opportunity to see many wildlife from seals to osprey nest.

    Our fleet includes single, both large and small, and tandem sea kayaks, 90% of which are equipped with rudders. We also have canoes available. You may come to South Freeport to pick up your boat here at Ring's or we would be glad to deliver it to your favorite launching site. While most of our folks enjoy day trips, some like to picnic or camp out on the local islands (for overnight camping information, please visit Maine Island Trail Associations (MITA).) We also have a Maine State Guide on staff to guide you through the waters on your kayaking adventures, too.

Come enjoy a wonderful kayaking or canoeing adventure on Casco Bay!

    We have a wide variety of kayaks to choose from, ranging in length, stability, width, cock pit size, etc.  We carry Necky, Daggar and Old Town.

    Customers with cottage rentals enjoy use of 1, 2, 3 weeks or longer on our kayak rentals, both single and tandem.

Our canoes are the perfect way to get out and explore Maine's beautiful waters. Our canoes range in sizes from 13' to 17'; complete rental service includes the use of paddles, personal flotation device (pfd or life vest), water bailer, rope and car top carriers to help you get your canoe where you'd like to paddle. Ring's Marine Service will also gladly deliver your canoes or kayaks. Advance notice is helpful.
