Sitting on the rocks, soaking up the rays while listening to the waves. Very few other people were there. It was an afternoon that refreshed like an entire vacation! Bus service was handy & drivers and others on bus were friendly too.

A perfect place to enjoy and explore the ever changing ocean, sky, and rocky Maine coastline! We love to climb the rocks and watch the waves come in. It’s a great place to sit and read or just be.

Free shuttle bus around the peninsula will bring you here. Picnic while you hear the ocean roar and walking the rocks. Nearby is a New campground 2015 with electric and water. Large sites, flat and well spread out. Clean bath houses friendly staff and volunteers.

I don't believe so but won't swear to it. I did not see any ferries and we were there for about 3 hours
