From its earliest days, the sea has defined this region as a center for boat building, coastal trading, sailing, fishing and recreation. The Peninsula’s many harbors and inlets are dotted by lobster boats, sailboats of all size and type, smallcraft and motorboats.
Working and recreational waterfronts coexist all over the peninsula and Deer Isle. From Stonington, (whose lobstermen and women deliver the highest lobster landings in the state) to the deep, protected cove of Buck’s Harbor in Brooksville, to Castine’s bustling harbor, the ocean continues to beckon.
Blue Hill’s public landing is in South Blue Hill, off of Rte 175. It is inaccessible by boat at low tide. Harbor Master: Dennis Robertson (207) 374-2281
