Frenchboro, Long Island
Frenchboro, Long Island

This small island village is located on Long Island in Blue Hill Bay.  It has hiking trails and lobsters galore. Most of the residents are involved somehow in the lobster industry and, once a year in August, they invite the world to their annual lobster festival. But you don't have to wait until the festival – take the ferry from Bass Harbor and enjoy a picnic while hiking the trails, visit the historical society and the one room schoolhouse (still in use) and get a glimpse of traditional Maine island life, first hand.


Twelve islands in the Gulf of Maine comprise the town of Frenchboro:

Black Island
Crow Island
Duck Islands (2: Little and Great)
Drum Island
Green Islands (2)
Harbor Island
Long Island
Mount Desert Rock
Placentia Island
