About


Approach

The approach to the anchorage on Damariscove Island is from the South. Reach the red/white "gong" buoy marked with a "TM" on the chart, to the southeast of the small rocks called "The Motions." Your approach into the harbor is pretty easy from there, just head north into the cove, past the coast guard station on your port side and anchor where you see fit.

The cove is narrow, but there is around 7-8' of water at low tide. There is also a dinghy dock in the cove on the port side as you enter.

About the Area

One of the earliest settlements in Maine by the Abenaki, Damariscove is natural Maine at it's finest. You won't find much on the island except a lot of natural beauty. There are some hiking trails and an old coast guard station on shore, but other than that you won't find much (but that's the point!).

List on the National Register of Historic Places, Damariscove was one of the earliest European inhabited islands on the east coast, thanks in large part to the abundant fishing grounds of the Gulf of Maine. Today the island is completely uninhabited, but it's scenery and calm make it a "can't miss" stop on your cruise Down East.
