Join us, Maine's only local tour company, for a tour of one of Maine's most elegant summer communities. Windjammers and lobster boats mingle in the harbor offering a glimpse of Camden's rich history as a fishing village and a summer community. Hosting "folks from away" since the first rusticators rode steamships from Boston and New York, Camden charms you with the flavor of a bygone era.
