Cranberry Islands

The Cranberry Isles consists of Great Cranberry, Little Cranberry, Sutton, Bear, and Baker Islands. It got its name from the wild low-bush cranberries that grow throughout the islands in the fall.

Great Cranberry Island is the largest of the Cranberry Isles off the southern end of Mount Desert Island. Access is by private boat or ferry service. Views from this island of the mountains of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island are spectacular.

The most well-known village, Islesford, is on Little Cranberry Island. Acadia National Park has a maritime museum near the public dock there.

Check with local ferry services for availability and schedules.
