Camden Maine Sailing Cruises and Charters

Let us be your Camden Maine Sailing Experience! Join us for a two-hour day sail or custom charter to enjoy all the beauties that Penobscot Bay has to offer such as its beautiful rocky shoreline, hidden mansions, small islands, lighthouses, seals, bald eagles, lobster boats, and other magnificent ships.

The Schooner Olad sails daily from Camden, Maine Memorial Day weekend to mid-October. The Schooner Olad offers historic two-hour day sails aboard a completely restored, classic yacht built in 1927. The Olad also offers custom sailing charters and can hold up to 22 passengers. Whether it is for two hours, half day, or full day, the Olad is the perfect place for a family reunion, office outing, wedding, party, or a get together with good friends!

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!

Seabirds, Sailing, and Lobster Bakes

   Schooner Olad will be welcoming aboard the Friends of Maine’s Seabird Islands this Friday the 18th on our 9:45am sail! FMSI will be joining us aboard the Olad to teach us about the local seabirds that frequent the area as well as nest here. Please join us for this two hour sail as we scout out Penobscot Bay for seabirds and other wild life. This is sure to be a great educational event for all ages. Also coming up in our line up of special sails this summer, the Olad will be hosting two public lobster bakes. We leave from Camden Harbor for a 1/2 day sail out to Warren Island State Park and while you explore the island, the crew cooks a wonderful lobster bake for you with all the fixings. Unfortunately, space is very limited. Luckily, we also host private lobster bakes on both the Olad and the sailing vessel Owl. You can charter either sailing vessel for a 1/2 day sail and have a delicious lobster bake on Warren Island, Maine’s beautifully secluded State Park in Penobscot Bay. The Owl seats six, making it the perfect daysailer for smaller families and groups who want a memorable Maine experience. And for your larger groups up to 22 people, the Olad is perfect. Sailing, lobsters, beautiful island…it’s the perfect day on the Maine coast. For more information and reservations, please go to our website www.maineschooners.com or call us at (207)-236-2323.
