Explore Maine Islands

Our Maine island adventures explore Casco, Muscongus, Penobscot and Frenchman’s Bays from central locations on the Maine coast. We will visit wonderfully charming villages, pristine island nature preserves and witness untamed vistas.  F/V Sea Keeper can go anywhere lobstermen ply their trade. 

Lunt Harbor(1)

Frenchboro

Tying up to the town pier in an isolated island community, you immediately sense a different time.  The patina of heritage is everywhere.   People talk to strangers with disarming openness.  Take a peek inside the church, visit the school.  Pause at the community store for a refreshment.  Wander down a shady street that follows the harbor edge, lined with tidy homes whose backyards ramble down to the tide line.

 These are working harbors.  The fishermen’s co-op is the hub of activity as a purse seiner unloads a night’s catch.  The bait wharf is busy with lobster boats.  Seagulls hover.

Sandy Cove

 There are 3000 islands on the Maine coast, forty of which have year-round residents.  Many of the rest are nature’s reservoirs, ruggedly beautiful, but so remote that you’ll only see them by boat.  Imagine visiting an untouched island shaggy with balsam fir, a white sand beach tucked into a wrinkle of the shoreline.  A timeless place which you will have all to yourself.

    Dear Sir or Madam -

    My girlfriend and I are hard working people from Chicago, Illinois. We really want to get out of the city and enjoy some quiet time somewhere beautiful, and we love the ocean, and we love Maine. We are looking at Friday July 1st through Monday, July 4th.

    Could you please help us suggesting a place where we could stay in Frenchboro?

    Thank you so so much.

    Michael
