Along our coastline lies a little known, yet incredible, natural treasure. It’s a vast and beautiful archipelago of over 100 Wild Islands. Considered to be “The most valuable islands you’ve never heard of”, the archipelago is one of the last remaining intact and ecologically rich island groups of its size in North America. Join captain Brian Murphy for an interactive scenic boat tour to experience the tranquility and breathtaking views for yourself. Our tour boat, “Murphy’s Legacy”, is the last traditional Cape Island style boat built by the late Norm Hutt, a famous local boat builder from Owl’s Head, which lies just 4 kilometres west of the campground.
During a 1.5 hour tour, you will travel approximately 5 km around the coastal islands enjoying breathtaking views of cliffs, beaches, coves, and sea shanties. You will experience marine life such as osprey, eagles, seals, porpoise, and sometimes even whales!
Typical tours will depart at 10:00am and 1:30pm but may vary based on availability, demand, and weather. Check in with the office to obtain accurate departure times. Each tour requires a minimum of 4 persons to sign up. Guests must sign up and provide payment in advance to reserve a spot on the boat. You may consider chartering the boat if you are looking for an: extended tour, private tour, adventure tour, and/or fishing tour.
