Penobscot Bay Kayak and Camping Adventure!

Friday, August 31, 2012 12:00 AM to Monday, September 3, 2012 12:00 AM

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.
