Lyman-Morse at Wayfarer is our full-service marina and boatyard in the beautiful Penobscot Bay town of Camden, Maine. The area abounds with activities to suit all tastes - in addition to spectacular boating, you’ll find great hiking and biking, terrific restaurants, galleries and museums, plus fun festivals that celebrate the local color and flavor of Maine.
Great location on the inner harbor floats. One night was a little rolly due to the direction of the swell outside the harbor, but the other 2 nights were calm. Be prepared to hear the 8 AM cannon fire from the yacht club close by if you are a late sleeper. Camden is a special town. Wonderful restaurants, shops and people.
Great marina - the staff were extremely helpful and met all of our needs. We went to the fuel dock before going to our mooring ball - got fuel, pumped out, and filled water tanks - all with help from a very friendly staff person. The use of the courtesy car was great - for provisioning and an errand to Hamilton Marine. The LM Ships Store was also helpful with a request we had. The launch service was great. Per previous reports, the recent fire caused them to not have shower facilities or laundry - but that was okay. Camden was a terrific place to explore. We need up staying another night. Also as previously reported, the mooring field / harbor was a bit rolly, but that is a nor something the marina can control. We will definitely come back here.
Everyone was very friendly and professional.
Very friendly and helpful staff. We were on a mooring and used our own dinghy but stopped for fuel, pump out, water and ice. Two dockhands plus other friendly folks about. Very good about masks. Professional.
Amazing mooring lines that were long and thick. Made us feel very comfortable on the mooring even though we are a 150,000 lb boat. We were able to attach the mooring line right to our cleat instead of needing to attach another line to lengthen it. Dinghy dock close by, although it always was very full we were able to get a spot. Easy trash and cardboard recycling. We had mail sent to them and easily picked it up even on a weekend. Very close to town, maybe a 5 minute walk and close to mount Battie for some hiking.
Loud construction for 2 whole days right next to the boat. A fire 2 months ago shut down the Captains lounge, laundry, nearby rest rooms, nearby showers, ships store, restaurant. All things considered don’t feel it was worth the price.
Everyone we met went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. Great place and wonderful people.
Unfortunately Lyman Morse lost their showers & guest lounge to a fire recently. However this is still one of our favorite stops.
Staff are terrific, very friendly and helpful. Kim is great. Definitely come back.
Excellent stay at Wayfarer! The dock was well-managed at the busy time of arrival. The launch was courteous, and we were able to get a small part repaired while there!
Great location and excellent service from the staff.
Bad experience. Coming into harbor guy on channel 71 could not verbalize where our mooring bouy was located?? When we went to the marina office found out oh by the way we had a fire 2 weeks ago that destroyed our bathrooms, showers and laundry but you are welcome to our 2 portapoties! Walked to town = a mlle for dinner and called for water taxi back to their marina. No reply so walked to marina and took our dinghy back to the boat. Got a call back just as we boarded with excuses blaming us for not calling on channel 71. I don’t know about you but I do not take my VHF radio to shore or dinner. Avoid if you want descent service and honesty about their Services. Also put us at far end of mooring field with bad swells all night when they had lots of mooring space closer in where it was much quieter. They really didn’t give a damn if you were comfortable or had a good stay just whined about how bad this summer was with the fire and the virus. Worst hospitality on the ME coast so far!!
The doc staff was awesome, the availability of a loaner car for driving to the grocery for reprovisioning was exemplary. However, unfortunately there was a fire at the dockside restaurant and bar three weeks ago and the restaurant and bar will be closed for the rest of the season. Currently there are no onshore showers, restrooms, or laundry available
They went above and beyond to service my boat (VERY competent staff) and make my stay spectacular (including a loaner car for provisioning.) This is a great marina..
The Lyman-Morse folks did what they needed to and were cordial. No complaints. The harbor was rolly but that’s not their fault.
I always feel like the marina itself and the destination should have two separate ratings. In this case they’d both be 5 stars. Lyman-Morse provides a great place to stay in Camden. The inner harbor floats put you right in the middle of all the schooner activity as well as being close to downtown. The free launch service is great, though it stopped running at 3:30 PM after Labor Day. The heads showers and laundry room ashore are immaculate. The courtesy car made a trip to Hannaford’s for groceries very easy. Camden itself is a wonderful place to visit - in fact we extended our stay to enjoy more of it. There are lots of good restaurants (Marriner’s serves a great breakfast). The library is out of this world in terms of atmosphere and architecture - including the park and amphitheater giving great views of the harbor. We enjoyed the free walking tour on Friday afternoon. We also hiked/climbed to the summit of Mount Battie which provided unexcelled views of Penobscot Bay and the islands. We love Camden and will be back for another extended stay next year.
Phenomenal marina. Every dock hand I encountered was friendly and helpful. They even let me stay a little past check out because they weren’t overly busy and we were enjoying town. Great spot and hope to be back next summer!
Excellent.... the dock facilities were great and the Dock Hand Service was top notch!
Great mooring. Friendly service. Answered call on VHF 71 immediately. Free launch service. Wonderful stay.
Journey's end has great facilities and a really attentive staff. complimentary launch makes it easy to get right downtown
Always a great stay - excellent facilities - friendly staff- easy walk to town - restaurant right on dock Rhumb Line fun spot .
Absolutely incredible professional and friendly service. Beautiful location and very nice amenities - showers, laundry etc. Could not have been treated better!
The entire staff was friendly and helpful in every regard. The launch service is included in your morning fee and is both timely and again friendly. Highly recommend this marina
Friendly, helpful staff. Good restaurant and facilities. Launch service was reliable.
AWESOME place....Best in all of Maine....SOOOOO.....Please don't book it so there will be plenty of room for US next year!!!!
Wonderful facilities and super helpful staff!
Top notch marina with an extremely friendly and helpful staff. I couldn’t have enjoyed it more!
We were on a mooring yet we were treated just as well as if we were spending much more money on a dock. They have a really nice gathering area with great patio furniture, outdoor fireplaces and a great view. The lounge area and restrooms were superb and they even supply you with great smelling shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The water was hot and the water pressure was terrific. We got to use a courtesy vehicle to stock up on groceries at the nearby Hannafords and everyone was professional, kind, and friendly. And Camden is awesome!
One of the most beautiful harbors in Maine. The staff here is right on top of things, very professional and helpful in anyway they can be. I can't recommend them high enough.
Great location and great service by the marina staff. Charlie was of great help and always willing to assist with a smile. Highly recommended.
Great showers and facilities. Friendly and helpful dock hands and staff. Short walk to town on the other side of the harbor or the launch will take you over. We were on the dock face float, day-trip schooners and plenty of other boats passing by regularly keeps it interesting but don't expect privacy. It's a working boat yard too, so if you're expecting to sleep in, you might be woken by the travel lift starting up. Didn't worry us, we enjoyed watching the activities when we were on board. Very sheltered and quiet, in the inner harbor so makes for a good night's sleep.
