TRIP LENGTH: 15 Nautical Miles
HIGHLIGHTS: Weaving between unique islands, crossing the open ocean, watching ospreys soar and glide, exploring the Punchbowl
Even though it lies less than 8 miles from the Portland waterfront, Jewell Island feels incredibly remote and wild. And it's a big enough island that there's a lot to see and explore. On a visit to Jewell, you’ll discover ecological wonder, military relics, miles of trails to explore and beachside campsites right on the edge of the vast Atlantic horizon. As her name suggests, Jewel glistens amongst the many shining islands of Casco Bay.
