Crow Island Casco Bay = Great Spot
Thu, 24 March 2005 08:14
Crow Island behind Chebegue Island is one of our favorite spots to anchor. Usually you will be the only transient boat in the harbor. Chebegue Island Boat Yard has a number of moorings in the harbor and we usually anchor just outside the mooring field and cruise over to Crow Island in the dink to have lobster bake. This truly is a great spot to anchor in Casco Bay and no one seems to know about it.

I like Crow Island.
It has a nice little beach and small house to run to in case it rains. Sometimes I walk or take my bike to the Chebeague Island Store from the boatyard and then stop at Crow after.
And don't forget Bang's Island just accross the way. There is plenty of room to anchor in behind the shellfish pens. In the right conditions it's a great place to spend the day or a night and a good island to explore. Expect to see Night Herons on those floating pens staulking minnows. They are always there.
Here is the little house on Crow. It is just the type of place I would like for myself. Looks like it would need to be winterized though.
