We did a two-hour family kayak tour of Camden harbor. I would recommend it only if (1) you have never been to Camden before and (2) you are a kayak novice. Otherwise, it's boring and tedious; find a way to do it on your own.

We came here to get running shoes and hiking equipment; they had a great selection, but the staff was clearly just hired for the summer and incredibly ignorant backing up their ignorance with outright rudeness

Louise E, Manager at Maine Sport Outfitters, responded to this review

So sorry to hear that your experience with us was not a happy one. Summertime can be very busy in the store and new staff are still getting their bearings. Sometimes what may seem rude is a little inexperience coupled with difficulty waiting on customers in a timely fashion when it's extremely busy. Please feel free to contact me directly... More

Bike shop is helpful, took fly fishing lessons from a guy named Paul, he's good at what he does. Everything inside the store is super expensive though.. Good place to try things on, test, or research before going online to buy.

We hired bikes for a couple of days. The staff were really helpful, we were given not just the bikes but also a cargo net each and a lock, as well as toe routes a 6 mile and 15 mile. The bikes were in repair and we didn't have any problems at all. I replaced my bike after a few... More

We had a GREAT experience, despite some trepidation on the part of our little ones. 2 man kayaks, expertly led by Chris, our fantastic tour guide. A great couple of hours on the water, even for novices. Definitely worth doing.

Maine Sport is an excellent outfiiter. The guides on the kayak tour were knowledgeable and friendy. Also rented a bike from them and they had detailed maps and made sure the bike fit correctly. They also had maps and information on all of the numerous hiking trails in the region. First Class!

We did the St. George river tour with our two kids, 5 and 8. Was perfect for them. Our guide was fabulous! Everyone we encountered at Maine Sport Outfitters was professional, accommodating, and friendly. Highly recommended.

We went on a two hour "sea kayaking" guided tour with a group of other tourists. The whole thing was just lame. We had to stay very close together, the guide told us nothing of what we were seeing which, in any case, wasn't much, and generally spoke in a normal speaking voice on instructing us where to go so...

Maine Sport, which is the leading high-end sports store in this part of mid-coast Maine, runs an outstanding two day kayak trip in Muscongus Bay. My wife and I did the trip last week. The trip participants meet at the store (near Camden) on the morning of the first day, follow the trailer with the kayaks to Friendship, ME, and... More
