Penobscot to Acadia Expedition

The seemingly endless clusters of islands between Penobscot Bay and Mount Desert Island offer all the elements of an idyllic environment for sea kayak camping: Abundant oceanside campsites, countless pocket beaches, infinite route options for exploration, and plenty of opportunities to find shelter from winds and waves. Each island has its own character, history and beauty, and many of them are open to visitors as part of the Maine Island Trail.

Often called “the lobster capital of the world”, and home to the quarries which provided the granite for Boston, New York, and D.C.s most iconic buildings, this region is also home to some of Maine’s prettiest coastline, where rocky shores and towering evergreens meet. While Acadia National Park draws millions of visitors to experience this environment, this trip provides paddlers with a chance to get away from the crowded hiking trails and explore it by water. When: August 3rd. Private trips are also available upon request.
