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!

Almost the end of our 2014 sailing season aboard the Olad

    The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and the nights are getting colder.   The Schooner Olad is heading into the final week of her sailing season, but there is still time to get out on Penobscot Bay for a sail before we put the boat to bed for the winter months ahead.  We will be running three sails daily, weather permitting, with the last and final sail scheduled for 10am on October 19th.  We would love to take you out for a sail to see all that Penobscot Bay has to offer before we end our 2014 season.     Thanks to all who made it out with us this season!  We really appreciate all of our return guests, and for the local hotel’s and inn’s support.  It’s so wonderful to be able to show people from away and nearby what a beautiful place we have to call home.  It was a banner weather year, and we were graced with people from all over the globe.  If you would like to join us for one last sail(or a few), please give us a call at 207-236-2323 for a reservation or visit our website www.maineschooners.com to purchase tickets online.  Happy sailing!

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.
