Wohoa Bay is a bay on the coast of Washington County, Maine. It is located between the towns of Addison and Jonesport. It features a coastal plateau bog ecosystem not found anywhere else in North America. Three rare species have been found in Wohoa Bay, including the crowberry, blue butterfly and bald eagle.[1] Both West River and Indian River drain into Wohoa Bay.

The bay is home to a number of islands, including Chandler Island, a privately owned island of approximately 1 acre in area.[2]
