On the Water

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

Brooklin‘s town landing is on Naskeag Point at the end of Naskeag Point Rd. Turn left at the General store when traveling south on Rte 175.

Sedgwick and Brooksville share a public landing at Walker’s Pond, off of Rte 15/175 (on Cooper Farm Rd.) in Sedgwick. This is a fresh water landing.

Sedgwick has a town dock on the Benjamin River.

Brooksville‘s other town landing is located on Rte 175/176 (on Franks Flats Rd) in North Brooksville, across from the Bagaduce Lunch. This landing is on a tidal river.

Brooksville is home to another public landing, located on Rte 176 (Coastal Rd) on Buck’s Harbor in North Brooksville.
