Off The Beaten Track in Hurricane Sound, Maine- Sailing Vessel Delos Ep 297

We set sail for Hurricane Sound in Penobscot Bay, where we discover a pristine nature preserve and dinghy through a tidal reversing waterfall! Eager to explore we depart Blubber Island and set sail for Hurricane Sound on the west coast of Vinalhaven Island. We make a stop at Hurricane Island to explore the abandoned granite quarries that supplied this beautiful stone used to construct the Brooklyn Bridge and Washington Monument. We anchor near a place called The Basin that has huge tides and a restricted inlet to a large bay inside the island where the escaping water creates a reversing waterfall caused by way too much water trying to escape. It’s a serious 12 knot current and we have way too much fun exploring it with Maggie!

Fair winds, and thanks for watching! XXOO- Brian, Kazza, and The Little Nugget
