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!

Great Summer Sailing aboard the Olad and Owl!

It’s summer in Maine, and the weather couldn’t be more perfect.  Warm days, cooler nights, and a consistent breeze to fill the sails…we couldn’t ask for better sailing conditions.  The Schooner Olad and the Cutter Owl are in full swing and running 4 to 5 two hour sails daily.  Two hours is the perfect amount of time to get out in Penobscot Bay and relax while we cruise around and see the sights.  The wildlife has been out in force.  Seals and porpoise are a daily sighting, and there are many different types of birds to see.  Borrow a pair of our binoculars that we keep on board or bring your own for a closer look. This year we are pleased to announce that we have added an online store in addition to our little shop on the public landing, and we have many of our items now online. Many styles of our t-shirts are available, mugs and hats as well.  You can even order gift certificates for that special someone’s birthday or for the holidays.  We’ve just expanded our t-shirt selection to include some classic polos as well as some funkier Maine sailing tees.  We have lovely Schooner-themed bags, jewelry, home décor, and framed prints of the local area and of course, the Olad! Come check us out at the shop off of the public landing or at our online store.   For more information and reservations, please go to our website www.maineschooners.com or call us at (207)-236-2323.     Cheers!
