Casco Bay near Portland can be a busy place during summer, but upper Casco (separated by Harpswell peninsula) is quieter and out of the way for most paddlers. We plan to camp on 2 different islands over 3 days, paddling 10-14 miles per day. This is a level 3 trip. Participants are expected to have some experience packing, maneuvering, and landing a loaded boat. There will be some open water paddling, but much of this trip will be on protected, tidal rivers (and tidal currents as well). See hyperlink below for description of level 3.
