Fort Popham to Fort Island via Boothbay Harbor Professional Review and Guide
"A trip from Popham Beach to Fort Island is a three-day tidewater journey through three rivers, across the mouth of the Kennebec River, and around an exposed peninsula in open ocean. This trip is for experienced paddlers only.
Highlights include the barren landscape around Popham Beach, the haunting Sequin Light, long sand beaches, the quiet beauty of the Back River and Hockomock Bay, and schooners gallantly sailing out of Boothbay Harbor. Many seals swim at the mouth of Kennebec, at the ledges across from Bay Point and along Popham Beach, possibly waiting for handouts from the many fishermen."
