White Island has been on our list of places to visit for a while. Today the conditions and timing were just right. A nice couple on a big trawler waved us over as we were circling looking for the ultimate spot. They wanted to let us know that they were weighing anchor within minutes and we were happy to take over their prime spot. There were many small day tripper boats occupying much of the anchorage so their spot was a score! This anchorage has a million nooks and crannies to explore. The boulders are perfect for a picnic and the sand bar is about as beachy as you get in Maine. This is the kind of anchorage where you are not sure it is the same place at high and low tide.
