Deer Isle Archipelago

The Deer Isle Archipelago offers the largest number of public-access islands and some of the best paddling on the Maine coast. The choices are often overwhelming— and the boat traffic and island use can be as well. The islands in this area are rounded and cracked granite topped with spruce trees; there are even meadows of wildflowers on the larger ones, like Harbor Island. Sea roses dot many of the shores. The “talking stone” beaches are a study in subtle hues and textures. The islands are more or less clustered, and all are within a reasonable day of paddling round trip from Stonington or Webb Cove.
