Priscilla is right! Too many choices here. It can get confusing. Lobster pots, lots of shoals in places you would never expect them (unless you checked a chart) Privacy on the hook, no noisy crowds to party with. All the 5 star restaurants are seasonal. Water is too cold for comfortable swimming. Strange birds and animals. You can get lost among the islands, not to mention walking around on them. A surplus of lobster means every place you stop wants to serve it to you. Summer days are terribly long this far north. Maine is not worthy of your list. Capt A has the answer.
