Lazy Gut Islands Adventure

Departing from one of the prettiest harbors on the planet the Lazy Gut Islands Adventure is sure to delight.  The journey will take you through several islands and across the south end of Eggemoggin Reach and along the North and West side of Jericho Bay.  We will work our way to the Lazy Gut Islands.  These rugged islands are mostly wild with a landing site made accessible by the Maine Island Trail(MITA).  There is potential for the excitement of open water paddling and a wide variety of wild life that can be found in this exciting and beautiful area to paddle.

Here you can see the course of one of our Lazy Gut Island Adventures.  We paddled about 10.8 nautical miles(12.4 miles).  We paddled through fog which cleared into a bright sunshine.  We maintained a relaxed pace made a couple of stops on different islands.  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.
