Overview
More
River Mist Kayak specializes in casual canoe, kayak and paddle board rentals in the Pemaquid area. Most customers take a couple hours to explore the Pemaquid River from the public boat launch. This peaceful stretch of water is a great spot for the novice boater, avid fisherman and the wildlife enthusiast. Come spend a couple of relaxing hours away from it all.

We took out a canoe this morning on the Pemaquid River. It was such a beautiful river with water lillies abounding, gentle river curves, turtles sunning themselves, frogs croaking and the best: two huge great blue herons with repeated sightings. I am not a strong...More

River Mist Kayaks is a gem of a business in a gem of a place. The kayaking along the river to Biscay Pond is beautiful, peaceful, and not to be missed. But the real treasure is Ron, the owner, who treats you like you are...More

The river was beautiful! Would have spent all day out on it if we had the stamina! The owner is very friendly and gave us lots of good advice! Equipment was next to new. Will definitely return next year.

My husband and I did a kayak trip from River Mist it was one of my favorite parts of our trip. I am from florida and took a swim and it was very cold but worth it.
