The secluded harbor is just spectacular. Nice dock for unloading. Keep hour boat I. One if the floats. There are several easy and beautiful hikes.

The Boothbay Region Land Trust has worked hard to preserve the history of this island. Our small Boston Whaler got us here. Be sure to have navigation charts as there are lots of rocky hazards surrounding the island. You can moor (or dock temporarily) in the snug harbor. There are walking trails and a fashionable outhouse for visitors. Turns out the fishermen here saved the colonists in Plymouth!

Only accessible by water, this island has a trail with historical markers. The cove fills up quickly so get there early!

Take a boat and walk an unspoiled, historic island. many of the Casco Bay lobster fishermen have their roots there.

An offshore island used by the first European fishermen to dry their catch, an early settlement that barely echoes today, and a barren landscape with a great view of the bays it divides, and the shore behind.
