Registration is required for this activity.

Overview

Avoid the weekend crowds and join us for mid-week camping on Jewell island in Casco bay. We will setup base camp for two nights and check out Eagle island or Harpswell. You will need camping gear and a suitable kayak to carry your gear, plus ability to pack your boat. The routes we take during the weekend will vary from 8 to 15 miles. Jewell sits on the outer edge of Casco bay, so you need to be able to paddle through 2-4' seas for a mile or more, depending on our route. We are subject to changing weather conditions (monitored with VHF radio) and you need to be capable of paddling in fog, wind, chop, or whatever nature thrusts before us. Registration and screening is required. See link below to register.
