Paddling from Popham out to Seguin Island is one of the great paddles on the coast of Maine. You start in a quaint coastal village setting and a historic fort, paddle past some small coastal islands, and eventually out into the open ocean to Seguin Island, located 3 miles off shore. Seguin Island is home to Seguin Island Light, which is the highest above sea level lighthouse in the state, and is open to the public during the summer. The currents and tides near Fort Popham can be treacherous. This is where the Kennebec River meets the Atlantic Ocean, use caution paddling this section. Consult tide charts to time the tide correctly.
Take Rt 1 to bath. In Bath take 209 to Fort Popham, the very end of the road.
