From 1874 to 1915, and again from 1921 to 1977, Matinicus Island had regular boa
From 1874 to 1915, and again from 1921 to 1977, Matinicus Island had regular boat service, but when the population reached 18, down from a high of 800, it was finally suspended. Today the island can be reached on an unpredictable, monthly Maine State Ferry, Penobscot Air Service, or Dick Moody's Offshore Freight and Passenger Service. Islanders balance their need for reliable mainland service with their fear of tourism. Details about all three services.
