The attraction of sea kayakers to Muscongus Bay is that the Bay is not used by many watercraft other than occasional lobster boats. The water in the Bay appears to have an unusual shade of blue, which also distinguishes it from other bays along the coast of Maine.
Near the middle of the Bay is a tiny 2-acre island, Crow Island. You can recognize this island by the lone tall spruce tree, which grows higher than all the rest. Other islands in the Bay include Louds, Thief, Wreck and Harbor. These islands –large and small – step across Muscongus Bay in a northeast to southwest direction. They are the remnants of glaciers, which once existed in the area. The area is expansive – but at all spots, the mainland is close by.
Muscongus Bay is the place to be is you enjoy sea kayaking and wide vistas of ocean water.
