My first kayaking trip was an overnight guided trip in Blue Hill Bay. for the MC, i'd recommend the lakes interior to the isle, like the aformentioned Eagle and Jordan as well as Echo and Long Pond. Another nice trip is the North side of the Island in Western Bay and Mount Desert Narrows, during low tide it actually "dries" up in spots so check the tides. the Upper parts od Somes sound would be alright for the MC as well. While i was up there last year i picked up a guide book: " The SeaKayaker's guide to mount desert island" author: Jennifer Alisa Paigen

Hope this helps and enjoy!
