Great Wass Eastern Shore

Great Wass Eastern Shore Professional Review and Guide

"More than fifty islands make up the Great Wass Archipelago that sits off the Jonesport Peninsula. Many of these islands host the southern extreme of some species’ ranges, providing invaluable nesting sites for seabirds and bald eagles, along with just the right mix of weather to nurture rare flora.

The feeling of wildness here is palpable. The waters of the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of Maine meet here to create a salty, damp environment of island peat bogs, stunted jack pines, and carnivorous plants. These islands are not meant for casual exploration. Instead, you sit quietly and absorb them."
