Što ćete raditi
Just south of Stonington lies a stretch of ocean packed with idyllic spruce-topped granite islands, perfect for beginner sea kayakers, as well as those wishing to get away from it all – at least for a few hours. The goal of this trip is to do a little sea kayaking and spend most of the day enjoying the tranquil beauty of a Maine island. We’ll meet and choose a route based on the weather and desires of the group; the Stonington archipelago offers many choices. After a safety briefing and some quick paddling tips, we’ll spend the morning paddling to our destination, perhaps stopping on some smaller islands along the way. Then then you’ll have two to three hours on an island to enjoy it however you like. Explore on foot with your camera, relax in a hammock, write poetry or create art, pick berries, gaze into tidepools or take a swim. Hammocks are provided, and we’ll help hang them. We’ll paddle back to the launch at the end of the day. To be clear, this area is NOT in Acadia National Park. There are far fewer people in the Stonington area, especially once we get onto the water.

Michael is the author of 'AMC's Best Sea Kayaking in New England,' as well as numerous paddling articles.

Gdje ćete biti
We’ll choose from one of 7 larger islands within an hour of our launch based on the weather and conditions, what the group would most like to experience and how far we would like to paddle. Some islands are known for beaches or glacial erratic boulders, while others have better trails or favorite hidden nooks that few other people ever visit. While Stonington is only 20-30 direct miles from Bar Harbor, it takes about 1.5-hours to drive there.
