Castine Harbor (44°23’N 68°48’W), at the entrance to the Bagaduce River, has ample depth and is easily entered. Dyce Head Light, 134 feet above the water, is on the north side of the entrance to the river. Pass close to the fairway bell buoy on either side and, keeping a reasonable distance offshore and south of the buoy marking Otter Rock Shoal, steer into the harbor on a midchannel course.
