“Great Kayaking trips, and best customer service ever!”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

Maine Sport Outfitters has been our go-to spot for our camping and kayaking needs for decades. When we were ready to buy our first kayak - already driving up to Maine en route to Canada - Cheryl in Paddlesports went above and beyond to find us the parts we needed for the roof rack (up the coast from Kittery to Belfast!) AND met the lowest price we had found for the kayak elsewhere. And then gave us outstanding advice on the equipment we would need. We have not regretted a single item she suggested. They installed the rack, and taught us the best way to load and secure the boat.

They also run a top-notch tour and instruction program. The Rockport Harbor to Camden Harbor tour is an outstanding experience for getting a start in sea kayaking in a setting of pure beauty. For a tamer, but no less enjoyable adventure, their instruction in recreational kayaking on Lake Megunticook - my favorite lake - can be the start of a wonderful family sport. And if you are in Camden and short on time, there is a short 2 hour session in the Harbor, which leaves right from the docks.
Maine Sport is also a fine place to buy a tent, or a jacket, or guidebooks. But it's the expert advice and amazing customer service that brings us back every year.
