I made a stop at Camden on my way to Acadia. The sunset sail was a wonderful experience. The crews asked for volunteers to raise the sails. They gave out blankets when it got cool and windy. Nice service and drinks were served with fees. Make sure you bring layers. It was a warm day on shore but got cool quickly as sun is setting and out on water
