Camden Maine Sailing Cruises and Charters

Let us be your Camden Maine Sailing Experience! Join us for a two-hour day sail or custom private 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 mid-May 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!  Join the Olad for one of the many public special events on offer throughout the season including sailing races, island lobster bakes, and lighthouse tours.

If you are looking for a more intimate trip join us aboard our 6 passenger cutter- 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's 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 and three-hour public sails daily and is also available for two-hour, three-hour, four-hour, six-hour, or full-day private sailing charters.  With advance notice the Owl will take you to Stontington for an overnight at one of their beautiful inns, to Vinalhaven for a romantic dinner and overnight at Nebo Lodge, or rent a tent site at Warren Island State Park, and we'll do a lobsterbake for you.  Did we say versatile?

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!

Another Week for Sailing!

Question of the day:  When will your last day of sailing be? We're happy to say that we will be sailing the Schooner Olad until October 22nd!  Our last public sail of the season will be at 10am that day. The week ahead is looking like more of the same great weather that we've been blessed with most of October.  We will be sailing at 10am, 12:30pm, and 3pm daily until the 22nd, weaqther permitting.  We hope you'll be able to join us before we say goodbye to the 2017 sailing season!

Our Sailing Season Isn't Over Yet!

One more month of sailing in our season remaining, and it's sure to be some of the best! Fall in Maine is beautiful and breezy, lending to some picturesque scenery and great sailing conditions.  It may be a little cooler on the water, but bring a hot beverage and your camera to capture the beautiful foliage, and we'll keep you warm and entertained with our woolen blankets and stories of the sea.   The Cutter Owl will be sailing through to the end of September for public sails, while the Schooner Olad will end it's season closer to the end of October.  The Owl will also be available with advance notice for private charters in October, weather permitting.  The crowds are light, the kids are back in school, and the sailing is looking to be fantastic.  We hope you'll join us!  For reservations, please call 207-236-2323 or visit us on the web at www.maineschooners.com. Cheers!
