  • The Penobscot Bay Ecosystem

    A unique place to explore and enjoy


    The Penobscot Bay area has a unique and stunning geography. Explorers of all kinds from the Native Americans to the early settlers who colonized this land called Penobscot Bay their place of home and harvest. It is no wonder that today the Penobscot Bay region continues to attract more and more people with its diverse talented population of trades people and artists of all kinds. The islands are tranquil and quiet places that bring one back to simpler times.
