Can't go wrong in Camden Harbor

Kayaking in small, picturesque harbors is a joy. Obviously, you must follow safety rules and be aware of what's going on around you, but the dangers in the smaller harbors are minimal. Weaving among the yachts, schooners, and crafts of all sizes is fun. The calmer waters in the harbors also reduce danger and since motor craft must go slow, their wakes provide non-threatening ups and downs.

Here are some shots of Camden Harbor taken from Mount Battie State Park:

You can launch from a small public beach or the boat landing and the trip around Curtis Island is enjoyable as there's a lighthouse on the east side. It was a slightly foggy morning when we took the pictures.
