This trip explores the western shores of Mount Desert Island, Bartlett Narrows, and Pretty Marsh Harbor. It is a very picturesque piece of paddling. Except for Bar Harbor, you’ll probably see more sea kayaks plying these waters than anywhere on Mount Desert Island. The Bartlett Narrows boat ramp has become so popular that town officials have considered closing it to all but permit holders, and may well have done so by now. For this reason, we suggest launching at Seal Cove to the south. You can enjoy the same scenery and a wonderful lunch stop at the Pretty Marsh picnic area.
