If you are looking for a more intimate trip join us aboard our new boat- the Sailing Vessel Owl! The Owl is the most versatile sailboat in Camden Maine's Sailing Fleet. She was designed by world Famous yacht designer John Alden to be a fast and comfortable cruising boat. Built in 1941, she is a timeless classic that has been rebuilt to the highest of today standards. She is available to charter for up to six passengers, making her the most private Wooden Sailboat in Camden's Fleet. The Sailing Vessel Owl goes out for two-hour day sails and is available for two-hour, four-hour, six-hour, or full-day private sailing charters.

Captain Aaron Lincoln is a local Mainer and will talk about the history of the area as well as the schooner trade while you sail one of his favorite locations!

Full day sail aboard the Schooner Olad!

As we turn the calendar to September, and anticipate cooler nights and fall foliage, we are still enjoying beautiful days sailing in Penobscot Bay.  Fall is a wonderful time of the year to sail and we are looking forward to many days of sailing yet to come until the end of our season.     On September17, 2014 the Schooner Olad will celebrate Maine Lighthouse Week by taking a full day sail to the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse.  The Olad will leave Camden Harbor at 10am and make it’s way to Rockland.  Watch for the Windjammer Fleet enjoying the breeze, lobster boats at work, and sea life out in Penobscot Bay.  We will tie up to the lighthouse dock and have a guided tour of the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse.  After the tour we will board the schooner and take a sail back towards Camden to return at 5pm.  On the way back, feel free to take some time at the helm or just enjoy the nature and wildlife as the boat sails on.      Lunch and snacks will be provided for this full day sail, but please feel free to bring your own snacks and beverages of any kind.  Please call 207-236-2323 to book a reservation or visit our website maineschooners.com for more information.

The 2014 Windjammer Festival is almost here!

If you have never been in town for the annual Windjammer Festival I strongly recommend checking it out this year as it is a very exciting and enjoyable weekend long festival. Windjammers from up and down the coast of Maine sail into Camden harbor to celebrate the area’s maritime history and culture. There are many exciting events throughout the weekend such as fireworks, lobster crate races, build a boat contests, and more. In addition to these exciting events you will have the opportunity to see the gorgeous Windjammers, many of which only come to the harbor once a year for this event. The Schooner Olad is offering several special sails throughout Windjammer Weekend that you do not want to miss! Join us on one of our Windjammer Festival Sail-in trips on Friday, August 29th from 12-2PM or from 2:30-4:30PM where we will sail among the entire Windjammer fleet as they enter Camden harbor for the weekend. On Friday we will also be offering a Fireworks Sail from 7-9:15PM where you can join us for a trip to watch the breathtaking sunset followed by the fantastic fireworks display over the beautiful Camden harbor. Finally, on Sunday, August 31st from 2:30-4:30PM the Schooner Olad will be participating in the Parade of Sail with the entire Windjammer Fleet as the ships sail around Camden harbor and out into Penobscot Bay.
