Paddle your way to scenic treasure

Kayakers on Sengekontacket pond. — Sophia McCarron

Experience the Island from a new perspective, and see beautiful views that are not possible on land. By exploring the waterways, you can discover places that are only reachable by a boat with paddles or a windsurfer, including sandy public beaches, hidden coves with swans and ducks, and secret openings to trail systems. Whether you are seeking a leisurely trip across a serene pond, or a challenging water adventure on a windy day, check the M.V.
