Demo in Real Conditions

Come out to Peaks Island, and test paddle our full fleet of Nigel Dennis Kayaks or our new models of Tiderace Kayaks. 


One of the largest retailers of Nigel Dennis Kayaks since their introduction in 1993

Maine Island Kayak Co carries the full range of Nigel Dennis Kayaks. We maintain a complete demo fleet here on Peaks Island, and encourage you to come paddle and try out our boats in our real world conditions. NDK's design and construction make them go-to boats for paddlers in challenging seas. As guides and coaches, we trust them to perform and stand up to years of rough water play and expeditioning. Yet their comfort and ease also provide a proven platform for athletic beginners and intermediates rapidly growing their skill sets in new waters.

MIKCo now has  Tiderace Kayaks in our fleet

Exceptional quality build leads to exceptional capability. Tiderace's computer design and construction enhance real-world boat performance. We have brand new models of Tiderace Kayaks ready to demo from our beach on Peaks Island. Come test paddle these boats and see for yourself.


"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water. Its substance reaches everywhere; it touches the past and prepares the future; it moves under the poles and wanders thinly in the heights of air. It can assume forms of exquisite perfection in a snowflake, or strip the living to a single shining bone cast up by the sea."    Loren Eiseley
