Mid Coast Maine Moorage

River Song,

Moorings in and around Rockland/Camden/Belfast are generally very much available. I suspect going forward being more so as folks are receding back a bit From the pandemic.

Transient moorings are always pretty much available in these areas and it doesn't hurt to make reservations a couple of weeks ahead just so when you get there a boat club annual cruise hasn't taken up all the moorings. We have never not been able to stay where we wanted.

A seasonal mooring in these areas are also quite available but I would try to secure one soon. There are many many coastal towns, coves, cities to choose from. The ones you mention are central and a great base for Penobscot Bay. The Boothbay Harbor area is a great base for Casco Bay, Musconguss Bay and within a few hours crusing to Pen Bay.

A favorite place for moorage is Linekin Bay in the Boothbay Harbor area. Linekin Bay Resort offers seasonal moorings, with tender service, use of their amenities and a great shoreside restaurant for what I thought for a reasonable price. It's about an hour driving less to this area than Rockland/ Camden/Belfast and maybe more in the summer.

There are many other places too. Contact me at or 207-833-5080 and will give you some tips.

The Maine Coast and Grand Banks boats are classics and go together very well.

Best regards,
Mike Dana
