Muscongus Bay has become a very popular sea kayaking area over the last ten years. The cluster of public islands on the western side of the bay is almost always full of campers during the summer months. The eastern side of Muscongus Bay is every bit as beautiful, but its only public-access point is a small paved ramp (with no parking) just to the east of Friendship Harbor. So you’ll need to be comfortable staying in your boat or heading west to the shores of a public-access island. You may see kayak groups landing on some of the other islands in this area, but this is by permission of the private owner only and does not grant access to any other boaters.
