The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

Where in the USA could you be boating and be in a place where you wouldn't see other people for days or weeks? Pure solitude.

Not many places like that in the USA to sail but just because you see other people doesn't mean you have to interact with them

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

You said boating, not sailing. I think there are river trips in Northern Maine, Alaska, perhaps in the Southwest, and so on that would qualify as remote. If you were limiting it to sailing, I think AK is the place. Though you could create some solitude by sailing during the off-season in some locations - maybe Maine in the winter?

Not US, But not Alaska either.

East coast of Quebec. Newfoundland.

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

I once did a story where I asked people their favorite place to hike/bike...

I soon realized this is a question that never gets a good answer, since people don't want to tell --- in this case --- where to go to find no one. It is counterproductive.

Ask for a second or third choice...

The windward side of any of the Channel Islands off of California are pretty remote and desolate most of the time.

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

I've discovered that secluded places are generally brought about because either they are hard to get too, or no one wants to go there.

Choose wisely.

Trust me, you can create a fair bit of solitude by sailing to Maine in the winter :-)

Lake Superior. I've done this lake end to end several times without seeing another boat.
