Three things you should know about the Muscle Ridge Islands. One: The island group’s name refers to the Old English spelling for indigenous colonies of blue mussels—not to what you’ll need to paddle out to these islands (you may see it spelled differently on different maps). Two: The islands are spellbinding in their beauty but somewhat intimidating because once you’ve paddled the 2 nautical miles out there, there is nothing beyond them but open ocean. Three: Limited public access requires you to be prepared to stay in your boat for long stretches.
