Ocean Kayaking in the Deer Isle Region of the Maine Coast – Stonington to Isle au Haut
The Deer Island Region of the Maine Island Trail
The Maine Island Trail (MIT) is a 375-mile chain of over 180 wild islands along the coast of Maine. In mid-July friends Dundee, Cully, David and I did a three day paddle on the MIT in the Deer Island Region. The Deer Isle Region extends from Stonington south to Isle au Haut and east into Blue Hill Bay. We tented two days on the two acre Steves Island (name by coincidence.)
We put-in at Stonington, Maine at the Old Quarry Ocean Adventure campground. Click the video below for exciting footage of our trip, including a Google Earth map of our MIT route.
