Naskeag Point Tour

Situated on the southern end of the Blue Hill Peninsula in the Town of Brooklin, the Naskeag boat Launch is one of the prettiest harbors that we have ever visited.  This area as an interesting history and a proud tradition of boat building.  Also some of the nicest Islands we have visited there are no shortage of opportunities to explore.  To the West lies Eggemoggin Reach and Deer Isle, to the east it Blue Hill Bay, and to the South is Jericho Bay.  Paddling at a confluence of several bodies of water often provide great opportunities to view wildlife.  We feel confident that the drive is more than worth the time for a top notch paddling experience.

Here you can see the course of one of our Naskeag Point 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.
