In order for most people to set foot on the island, they have to first set foot on the mailboat. Isle au Haut Boat Services provides year-round scheduled passenger, freight, and mail service between Stonington and the Isle au Haut Town Landing, with additional seasonal service to the Duck Harbor Landing in Acadia National Park. Our boat company operates as a non-profit, and works diligently to meet the needs of the Isle au Haut community. We have two boats: The Mink, named after one of the island’s more elusive animals; and the Miss Lizzie, affectionately named after Isle au Haut’s former post mistress.
