Maine Tradition

  Join us this summer for an exciting day of sailing, island hopping, and fresh Maine lobster cooked to perfection just for you.  The Schooner Olad will be sailing to Warren Island State Park this summer for our guests to enjoy a Maine summer tradition: the Maine lobster bake.  Choose from four different dates in July and August.  We will board the Olad in Camden and take a sail to Warren Island State Park through the beautiful archipelago of Islesboro.  While we sail to the island, our crew will be preparing you a traditional Maine lobster bake including all the fixings.  Enjoy a hike around the island, eat all the lobster you can, and then board the Olad and sail back to Camden, Maine.  Our lobster bakes are BYOB, so you're more than welcome to bring along whatever you would like to enjoy on the boat and with your lobster feast.  There are many great places locally to pick up a bottle of wine, a local brew, or some fancy local sodas.           In addition to our public lobster bake, you may also privately charter either the Olad which seats up to 22 passengers, or for smaller groups join us on the Owl which seats up to 6 people. It's the perfect trip for family reunions, company events, weddings, and birthdays.  We hope you'll be able to join us!
