This beautiful remote island, about 8 miles from Mount Desert, is mostly undeveloped and visitors have access to miles of hiking trails and paths to explore.

Lunt Harbor is the only harbor on the island and is easily entered from the west.

Lunt and Lunt runs the fuel docks and restaurant on the docks. Dinghy tie-up and ice are available at the docks as well. They monitor VHF channel 80 or you can call (207) 334-2922. Anchoring space is available just outside the harbor entrance.
