  Great Advice/Local Knowledge
  Posted by: eel on Jun-19-13 11:05 AM (EST)
 

You are getting some great local knowledge advice which is priceless when planning trips. Just want to add that there is a good deal of merit in starting early and being at your destination by 1PM when paddling in areas that are exposed on the Maine coast. Also, Nate pointed out the current between Eagle and Deer Isle. My limited experience is that there is often more current than expected in some areas on the Maine coast like the passageway between Eagle and Deer Isle and not planning for it, especially when the prevailing winds are against the flow, can make for a long day at best and a dicey time at worst.
