Maine Island Trail is a collection of islands to camp on.. not a paddling association or club at all.

As a matter of fact we are off next week to paddle off of Stonington and camp on some of the islands in Merchant Row. We will camp on the Isle Au Haut part of Acadia National Park and perhaps an island open only to MITA members. The guidebook is awesome and well worth membership for anyone kayaking in these parts.
