What to Bring
You know the drill, pack like you’re spending the day outside—bring towels, beach chairs, blankets, sunscreen, hats, bug spray, water, etc. And of course, layers are always a good idea. Be prepared to get your feet wet getting off and on the boat at the island. There is no dock on the island.
Please note: This is a rugged, uninhabited Maine island. There are no facilities here. We will have a small porta-potty but otherwise, be prepared to be one with nature.
