While many visitors come to Ogunquit for rest and relaxation, it’s important to note the assortment of activities available around town. From land to sea, Ogunquit’s modest acreage does not limit what it has to offer the outward bound.
Ogunquit’s Main Beach – rated one of the top ten in New England – is more than just the beautiful postcard image. During the summer, kids and adults alike enjoy strolling beside the rolling waters, playing volleyball and bocce on the sand, as well as boogie boarding and surfing the waves.
Do you love the way those picturesque sailboats glide off the coast? Walk no further than Perkins Cove to catch a ride on the high seas. Fishing enthusiasts rejoice! Deep-sea fishing out of Ogunquit can bring you far into the ocean to find that big fish you’ve been searching for. Trips range from half-day outings to marathon events.
In the mood for more adventure? Take a guided kayak or SUP tour along the coast. More than just a scenic trip, these tours can be the best exercise you get all year, and are tailored to all levels of experience. If you already know where you want to go, rent a board or boat for an hour or a whole day and explore on your own. On this website, you will find information on deep-sea fishing, whale watching, other cruises and bike routes.
For those more interested in a land experience, Ogunquit is a walker's paradise, so you can easily leave the car at your hotel and explore the shops, galleries, and the Marginal Way walkway.
