Best Sea-Kayaking Trail

With stop-off points on 146 granite isles, the Maine Island Trail offers more options and solitude than either Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands or Washington’s San Juans. Go in September, when the swell is below four feet. Start with the 30-mile loop around Great Wass Island and flag down a lobster boat in Moosabec Reach (expect to pay $2 per pound) for a proper camp feast.
