Ross was our guide. He was fantastic, especially given the rough conditions and the relative inexperience of some of the paddlers. He safely navigated us to Camden and was friendly and entertaining.

Enjoyed being out on the water with a very interesting and capable guide. As we had padding experience this was a bit slow for us, but still an enjoyable way to see the Camden harbor.

We signed up for a two-hour kayak tour of the harbor and to ride around the nearby island (I can't remember the name), by calling the Outfitters store and making a reservation. They told us to go down to the dock and be there 15 minutes before the tour started, but no need to do

We loved the trip. But don’t like to be rushed. When we arrived to Curtis island we wanted to spend more time but weren’t allowed to. 15 minutes wasn’t enough to enjoy it. Scenery was gorgeous

Thanks so much for the 4-star review, Kaywin W! We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your Harbor to Harbor kayaking experience with Maine Sport. Curtis Island is a beautiful place to enjoy and we regret not being able to allow for more exploration time. We do have rental kayaks available that people often use to travel out to Curtis Island at their own pace. We hope you'll join us again in the future, whether that be for a shopping trip at our Rockport or Camden stores, or for another guided trip. Stay adventurous, friend!
