Blue Yonder Sail Charters was an incredible experience. The captain (Joel) and first mate (Amy) are wonderful hosts. Incredibly competent, yet relaxed and personable, they made our outing (6 friends) a truly unforgettable experience. We are so grateful for our day on the water with Joel and Amy. We'll never forget seeing Maine from your beautiful vessel!

Vinalhaven Historical Society

The society has pictures of Vinalhaven and exhibits about its granite industry from 1880-1910.

Reviewed By fallowtreveler - Berkshires, Massachusetts

A truly wonderful variety of exhibits chronicling the island's history from its earliest farmers and sea captains, through its heyday as a granite quarrying center, it's brief turn as a spa location where folks came to "take the waters," and it's more recent life as a summer home for artists and academics. Well run and a testimony to its curators, Roy Heisler and Bill Chilles.

Located at the northern end of Vinalhaven, Maine.

Reviewed By wcrossman - Camden, Maine

If you are Into hiking,and I am not......you will enjoy this well maintained trail and beautiful views. Situated outside of town but easy to find there is adequate parking and well marked trails. It is not a walk in the park nor is it meant to be but on a sunny day the walk is memorable and rewarding.

Basin Preserve

Reviewed By Bakerz - North Carolina

"Lose yourself" on the meandering hiking trails that will lead you to the well-known Seal Basin. The Vinalhaven Land Trust has done a masterful job clearing and mapping trails to ultimately lead one to multiple opportunities to view seals sunning on rocks. Low tide is the best time to come; seals will be more likely to show themselves during the low tides. Also, there is a sandy trail that allows hikers to cross over to a small island for a better view. This path is only visible during low tides and will be completely submerged during high tide. Be sure to bring binoculars. This is a moderately easy hike but there are many tree roots that could be treacherous. Such a beautiful , traqnquil spot!!

A tiny picnic spot in Vinalhaven.

Reviewed By wcrossman - Camden, Maine

Next to the Maine State Ferry Terminal on Vinalhaven is a most delightful picnic area with stunning views and a place for quiet reflection on the rocks over looking the Atlantic. Bring your Pup,(dog friendly) and enjoy a peaceful morning or afternoon respite...you will not be disappointed.
