Eagle Island Extravaganza
Sunday July 13 from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
This is a great family trip! We'll launch from Harpswell and head over to Eagle Island State Park, where adventurer Admiral Peary's summer home still stands. Admiral Peary purchased the island in 1881 for $200, just four years after graduating from Bowdoin College. In 1909, Peary and fellow explorers would be the first humans to reach the North Pole. Today, the "cottage" is a museum that we can check out during our tour.

This 6 mile kayak tour is $125 per paddler (park fee and a picnic lunch by Old World Gourmet included in price).
