Acadia National Park

You are standing by Somes Sound, one of only a few US fjards - glacially carved valleys drowned by the sea. This five-mile-long bay has attracted people for thousands of years. English homesteaders Abraham and Hannah Somes and James and Rachel Richardson settled their families in 1761 at the head of the bay at what is now Somesville. Schooners and merchant ships soon plied these waters with loads of lumber, fish, and granite. Today, residents and visitors alike relish the scenery on foot, or by water on sailboats, tour boats, and kayaks.Somes Sound nearly divides Mount Desert Island in half. Visit the villages and Acadia National Park sites on the west side of Somes Sound, the island's "quiet side."Somes Sound is 150 feet (46 m) at its deepest point but decreases to about 30 feet (10 m) at its entrance, appropriately called The Narrows.
