The excursion starts from port with a scenic ride to picturesque Camden, a quintessential New England town and self-described “Jewel of the Maine coast”. Located mid-coast Maine, Camden is a haven for ocean lovers, shoppers and outdoor adventurers. In the summer months, the population more than triples due to visitors and seasonal residents, many who reside in gorgeous ocean-view estates around the harbour. Downtown Camden is a delight of upscale boutiques, antique shops, general stores, seafood eateries and cafes, and charming Camden Public Library on the waterfront surrounded by a lovely park for picnicking. You have time to explore the town on your own before we board a century old schooner for a two-hour cruise along the coast. After the boat trip we are transferred back to MS Fram.
