The Experience

Sometimes, due to weather, boat schedules are changed or amended by the boat captain to suit inclement weather. Weather and natural disasters are beyond our control and delays are sometimes necessary. The safety and security of all guests, partners and staff is of superior importance to us. We therefore thank you for understanding and cooperation with delays. Rain and fog are common during the Maine summer so please be prepared. The island has its share of wildlife including fox, deer, eagles, osprey, cranes, blue heron and rabbits - we ask that you help us protect our fauna and flora that we love so much by being respectful of their natural habitat. Do take photos, but please do so at a safe distance. Mosquitos are a nuisance and while we offer an all natural madagascar vanilla mixed with spring water spray to guard against such, please do feel free to bring your own preferred mosquito guard.
