About Us

Most people enjoy exploring the many tide pools of Maine, but do you know what amazing critters actually live in between the tides? Coast Encounters will take you on a true, hands-on Maine excursion where you will roll up your sleeves and romp in the tide pools. Tours will be conducted at a rocky shore near you.

Three-hour excursions are scheduled daily, at low tide from May to October. All ages 5 years and up, water shoes provided. Good physical health to withstand extended periods of crouching and balancing/walking over slippery rocks and seaweed.

$50 for adults; $35 for children (ages 5 – 18).

Don't want to get your feet wet? We can bring the critters to you! Coast Encounters can be booked for private events, birthday parties, school programs, assisted living facilities, libraries, etc.
