Ogunquit Beach is best known for its white, sugar-like sand which covers nearly the entire peninsula. Kick off your shoes and enjoy a day in the sand, without having to worry about rocks you may find at other Maine beaches. Sandbars and safe, shallow waters make this a favorite destination for guests and a great place to bring your family for a day full of fun.
Leave the seasickness behind and explore the waters from the beach! People love to play in Maine’s tide pools, but do you know what you’re looking at? Coast Encounters offers a hands-on, educational adventure through the tide pools. Your family will peek under rocks and seaweed to discover over 30 plants and animals. By the end of your encounter, you’ll be able to teach your friends all about tidal creatures.
Try your hand at catching lobsters with an authentic Maine lobsterman! Finestkind Scenic Cruises offers a behind the scenes experience of lobstering. Your guide will show you how the crew hauls their traps to catch lobster. Watch your children be amazed when they look inside the cage at the sea life. Along the way, your guide will point out scenic points of interest. Bring your camera to capture the fun!
Ride the Waves
Surfing in Maine is a year-round activity, which is why it’s never too late to learn how! Liquid Dreams Surf Shop has a full staff of instructors ready to teach you how to stand, ride, ocean safety and wave selection. Children may join a three to five-day camp and learn the fundamentals of surfing. If your family is short on time, sign up for a private lesson.
