Det skal I lave
Just south of Mount Desert Island, the Cranberry Islands offer a quiet paddling destination away from the crowds of Mount Desert Island, but with MDI’s mountains as a backdrop. On this trip for paddlers with some experience, we’ll start with a safety briefing and then launch from Northeast Harbor. We’ll paddle along shores lined with century-old rusticators’ ‘cottages’ as well as some wild, undeveloped stretches of rocky bluffs as we loop around Bear, Sutton and Little Cranberry Islands. We’ll visit the village of Islesford, where there’s a restaurant and small museum, and if time and conditions allow, we’ll get out to the lighthouse on Baker Island, a remote part of Acadia National Park. Expect to paddle 8 to 10 miles, depending on conditions and the desires of the group. Along the way I can offer some instruction to maximize your effectiveness and enjoyment - it's okay if you've never paddled on the ocean - just be ready for a little exercise. We'll take a break on an island every hour or so, and we'll have lunch either in town or on a stone beach. We'll return to the launch as MDI's mountains turn golden in the late afternoon light (weather permitting)

Sea kayaks and related gear. I have several 'performance' sea kayaks (about 22" wide, fast, agile) and a 22.5' double that…

Her skal du være
We'll launch from the rusticator enclave of Northeast Harbor and paddle past Bear Island for a glimpse of the lighthouse there. We'll check-out a massive osprey nest perched on a rocky spire beside Sutton Island, and linger in Islesboro, the village on Little Cranberry, where there's a restaurant and museum. Time allowing, we'll get out to Baker Island to see the lighthouse.
