Frenchman Bay Tour

These tours usually based out of The town of Sorrento on the north end of Frenchman Bay we will head out and explore the Islands of Frenchman Bay.  These Islands are not only beautiful in their own right but weather permitting this part of Frenchman Bay boasts some of the best views of the mountains of Acadia National Park your can find anywhere.  Toss in the nearby seal colonies and many type a birds that live in the area, as well as the sometimes feisty nature of Frenchman Bay and you will have a trip you won't soon forget.

Here you can see the course of one of our Frenchman Bay Tours.  We paddled about 5 nautical miles(5.75 miles).  We paddled at a relaxed pace and made a couple of stops under mostly clear skies and calm seas.  The Google Earth image shows an approximation of areas that are possible to explore in a half day tour.  Weather and group abilities will determine that actual course that your group travel.  If you have a specific goal in mind let us know and we will try to make it happen.
