Water Activities

Imagine your Facebook update: Spent the morning kayaking on Penobscot Bay…scanned the shoreline for seals and herons, watched the osprey fishing over head…until I jumped~ there was a dolphin within arm’s reach of the kayak! Oh, and the Instagram images are even more amazing...Wish you were here!

Our beach is a wonderful mix of gravely sand, cobblestones and glacial rocks...perfect for exploring tidepools, swimming and hunting for seaglass. Wheelchair accessible and child friendly, you won't find any mudflats, undertows or sharp drop offs here.
