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!

Here's to Maine sailing in the summer and blizzards in January

Well, at least it's almost February, and at least we love our skiing.  I'll take a blizzard in January over a hurricane in July any day. It's blowing a serious stink on the other side of my window right now.  The snow's blowing 'right sideways' as a local Mainer would say. My snowboard is going to touch the white stuff for the first time this weekend.  You all can have your Super Bowl(go Patriots!)...that just means the mountain will be empty.  More ski time and freshies for me! While this storm slowly makes it's way across the North East, I'll stay cozy inside with my coffee and scheme on some special sailing events that we'll be having aboard the Schooner Olad and the Cutter Owl.  Maybe we'll win the Great Schooner Race in July with the Olad, or even the Eggemoggin Race with the Owl in August.  Either way, it'll be awesome to spend the day under sail in Penobscot Bay off the coast of beautiful Maine with some wonderful people. If your dreaming about sailing this summer like we are, take a look at our special events page or find the perfect excuse to celebrate with a private sail aboard the Owl with a few of your closest friends.  We are happy to help you plan the perfect sail, whether it's a 2 hour sail along the coastline or a full day sail and picnic or lobster bake on Warren Island State Park. The possibilities are practically endless.  Feel free to give us a call, 207-236-2323 or send us an email, [email protected] if you have questions or would like to book a speciail sail. Until then, we'll keep scheming up some fun sailing adventures for our guests to enjoy.  Safe and warm wishes to everyone who is enduring the blizzard of 2015!  

Winter dreaming in Camden, Maine cruising on Penobscot Bay

It is a quintessential day here in Maine. The snow is lightly falling and begs for help in the making of a snowman or fort.  The Camden Harbor is quiet and still with a light layer of ice around the shore.  This weather leaves me dreaming of a summer day sailing cruise on Penobscot Bay, and maybe a picnic or lobster bake on Warren Island. All of this dreaming has lent itself to a great offering of special events for this coming summer season.  We have many old favorites as well as some new offerings this year. Please check out our full list of great events here on our website.  Reservations are suggested as many of our special events book well in advance.    In addition to our public special events we are also currently taking advance reservations for many private charters for this coming summer.  We would love to take your wedding party on a pre-wedding day cruise or for your big day.  Our captain, Aaron Lincoln is a notary and is happy to officiate your wedding in one of the most beautiful and memorable locations in Maine; Penobscot Bay.  A private sailing charter is also a great way to show your appreciation to your employees or for any special occasion.   We will work with you to create a great experience for your group that they will be talking about for years to come.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions via phone 207-236-2323, or email [email protected]   Cheers!
