The bays and harbors around Mount Desert Island provide dozens of options for dramatic sea kayak trips—so many you never have to cover the same ground twice. The backdrop is Acadia National Park’s mountains, which rise abruptly from the shoreline. The 16-by-13-mile island is almost bisected by Somes Sound, the only fjord in the eastern United States. From visual highlights alone, the trip from Southwest Harbor to Great Cranberry and Little Cranberry is one of the best Mount Desert and possibly the Maine coast has to offer.
