Transportation and Accommodation
For Symposium attendees coming from the mainland, the Library has arranged for a chartered lobster boat departing Rockland at 4 pm on Friday, August 14th and returning at 9:15 pm. On Saturday, the boat will leave Rockland at 7:30 am. Return is available on the ferry at 12:30 or 3:45 pm. Tickets can be purchased here. We are also making arrangements for transport from Vinalhaven.
There is very limited hotel/motel accommodation on North Haven. Our Place Inn may have rooms available. At present, Nebo Lodge is fully booked, but sometimes there are cancellations. There are several B&Bs and hotels/motels in Rockland and along Route 1 up to Camden. It is advisable to make reservations as soon as possible because the Symposium weekend coincides with Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors boat show in Rockland.
