This trip to the Isles of Shoals has proven to be one of our most popular events! Cruise from Rye Harbor aboard the Uncle Oscar. Please arrive at the Uncle oscar (Rye Harbor) no later than 7:00am for sign-in. We gear-up at sunrise, load the Mothership, leave port around 7:30am and arrive at the Isles around 8:00am. In the morning we all paddle together exploring several of the Islands. Bird watching and seal sightings are the highlights of this portion of the paddle. After lunch, the paddle becomes less structured. The group may break into several smaller pods to explore separately. Paddle around the Mothership in Gosport Harbor or paddle to Smuttynose Island or head over to close-by Star Island for ice cream! For the more adventurous, join a guide and paddle to White Island, Seaveys Island or Lunging Island. The Uncle Oscar will "pull anchor" at 6:00pm and head back to Rye Harbor, arriving around 6:30pm. These tours usually sell out quickly, so don't hesitate to make your reservations now!
