Penobscot Bay Kayak and Camping Adventure!

Paddling Date: Fri August 31, 2012 - Mon September 3, 2012

Sea Kayaking in Penobscot Bay and camp on MITA islands near Vinalhaven for two nights and three days. Our goal is to reach Vinalhaven if conditions permit - winds, seas, and weather can change the best laid plans. Camping on MITA islands is a rewarding experience that we supplement with great food and company. This trip is for experienced paddlers who can pack their own boat, launch and land with loaded boats, and maneuver a loaded kayak in variable ocean conditions. Expect to paddle 12-20 miles with 2-4 mile open water crossing with swells or chop. Cost is approximately $80 for food, parking, and Friday night camping.If interested, contact registrar and provide phone # and summary of your paddling level and experience. See Boston AMC sea kayak web link for more details about levels.
