We will spend two nights camping and exploring remote wild islands. Camping on the islands is an incredible experience, the smell of the ocean, sounds of the ocean waves crashing on the rocks, seals barking, and the sounds of  birds communicating all contribute to a wild and remote experience. Experience coastal Maine the way it is meant to be…wild, beautiful and up close.
