HAMPDEN – In the midst of the pandemic, a kayak touring company recently opened in Brooklin.
Nautical By Nature Kayaking provides a small guide service exploring the coast of Maine. The business is operated by Peter Gage and his wife.
“A focus of mine is to operate in the less busy areas that don’t get the same publicity as Bar Harbor or somewhere like that to get away from the crowds and to operate it with smaller groups,” said Gage.
The business was created during the pandemic, according to Gage.
Gage has had his guide license for over seventeen years.
As far as the social distancing guidelines, people are far enough apart in the water where face coverings are not required. Hand sanitizer will be available both on the shore and during the trip.
The goal was to encourage people to experience paddling along different areas of the coast with loved ones instead of going out to eat or shopping, according to the Gage.
