WHEREKayakers by cliffs of Jewell Island

Jewell Island base camp, and the outer islands in Casco Bay. MIKCo will reserve camping, set up a public campsite, supply tarps, water, firewood and stoves for community dinners, and will operate power boat support for gear.


A cooperative, weekend social gathering to tell Tall Tales and share our common bond around our paddling interests and All Things NDK. We encourage everyone’s participation and involvement in camp gatherings. We will serve community dinners Friday and Saturday on Jewell for those that opt in.

On Saturday, groups may visit West Brown Cow and the Broken Cove ledges, paddling on to Admiral Peary’s Eagle Island, or go rock gardening and surfing along Jewell’s beautiful Eastern Shore. If conditions allow, perhaps even a moonlight paddle…

Informal instruction: at least half of being a seaman is learning together by socializing and talking.


Anyone part of the NDK family is welcome to join! You must have full camping equipment that you can pack in your kayak, plus arrangements, skill level and experience to paddle safely to Jewell Island from the mainland or from Peaks Island – maybe paddle with Nigel and one of our guide-led pods from Peaks. Jewell Island is an outer island in Casco Bay, fully exposed to dynamic conditions: ocean swell, wind waves and tidal currents.

Musicians? Please volunteer!
