The water sport journey began for Brian in Cape Cod in 1979 when he fell in love with windsurfing. Windsurfing led him to Maui, Hawaii where he was an avid wave sailor. Brian lived and worked on Maui for 16 years and during that time he met and married his wife Tamara. Both Brian and Tamara are east coast natives.
With the arrival of children, the pull of home called them back to New England. The family moved to Port Clyde Maine from Maui in 2002 and quickly saw Musconugus Bay as a paddler’s paradise. They opened Port Clyde Kayaks in 2004.
The kayak tour business grew quickly. The Codys tried paddle boarding on a winter trip to Florida in 2007 and were instantly hooked. They added Naish and Jimmy Lewis boards to the paddle sport business and were the first to promote SUP in Maine’s mid coast.
There are over one hundred islands that make up the pristine mid coast area. The clear often tropical looking water, the stunning backdrop of islands and rocky shores, and the abundance of wild life make for world class paddling.
Maine is vacation land. Brian Cody loves sharing the spectacular Saint George peninsula with visitors from the seat of a kayak. As the business has expanded the Codys have built relationships that have lasted over a decade and watched families return year after year. They enjoy sharing the paddle sports that they are so passionate about with clients and friends who come from all over the world.
