Great Duck Island Light
|Photo by Jack Ryan
The approach to Blue Hill Bay, through the Gulf of Maine, leads mariners by a collection of rocky islands. About five miles southeast of famed Bass Harbor and Mount Desert Island lies the Great Duck Island. The 265 acre rocky isle, with a built-in natural bird bath, is the summer home for thousands of ducks, Black Guillemots, and Storm-petrels; nearly 20 percent of Maine's nesting seabirds.
