Extremely quiet surroundings, at end of a long drive belonging to Green Island. You'll have access to a launch area at the end of the drive to put in a kayak or canoe. The area is perfect for paddling around and exploring. There are two small islands to visit for a picnic or a swim, a colony of seals to watch (please try to respect their space and stay ~150 feet away) and if your lucky Bald Eagles and Opreys nesting and hunting in the area. This side of Mount Desert is often sunny when other parts are fog bound. The water is warmer here and more calm. Perfect for Kayaks and canoes.
