If there are any good charter companies that operate reasonably close, the Portland area is a bit further than I'd like to drive from Camden, but if there's nothing closer I would consider it. Any recomendations would be greatly appreciated.
The Penobscott area is a much better area for charters than the Portland area. Less commercial and more options for destinations.
Johanson's was mentioned but they may only do bareboat charters. I chartered with them for years and had my own boat in charter with them for a while. Still use them for storage and maintenance. Doesn't hurt to ask. Further up the bay, Bucks Harbor Marine charters both sail and power boats. Never chartered with them but they are in a very pretty harbor.
