Activity Type: Sea Kayaking
Nearby City: Steuben
Distance: 7-8 nautical miles
Tidal Information: 11.31-foot range at Milbridge. Currents flood to the north.
Hazards/Cautions: Currents are strong in this area; avoid paddling against them or in opposing winds, which steepen the waves. The south end of Bois Bubert is directly exposed to the open ocean and whatever swells it may bring. The shallow areas south of the island and Little Bois Bubert stretch out for some distance, producing breaking waves. The crossing between Bois Bubert and Jordans Delight is similarly exposed and might be best paddled toward slack tide. Plan to be at Petit Manan Island around low tide for the most tidal advantage; slack tides should be the least dangerous time to be near the Petit Manan Bar.
Season: Year-round
Local Maps: NOAA chart #13324; Maptech #42
Driving Directions: Directions to Bois Bubert Island
