Cruising Ideas



· Penobscot bay thru Merchant's Row to Swans Island ( burnt coat harbor).
· Then to Somes Sound way up to Somes Harbor. Dinghy dock there,short walk to store and free bus all over the island. There's also a Sumer theater in Somesville!
· Back to Blue Hill Bay to Blue Hill.
· Down the bay to Eggamoggin Reach to Buck's Harbor.
· Then Castine.


· From Rockland to North Haven and Vinalhaven is splendid with great places to get off the boat and explore the towns and excellent food, shops, museums, music etc very handy.
· NEBO Lodge on North Haven is one of my favorite places,
· Rockland is full of everything including world class museum and galleries. 
· Four Star restaurant PRIMO’s in Rockland is outstanding.
· Then there is Camden – fun to walk around see the harbor also excellent restaurants and shops.
