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 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 and three-hour day sails and is available for two-hour, threee-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!

Dreaming of Summer Sailing & Lobster Bakes

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 bakes, 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! For more information visit us at www.maineschooners.com  or call 207-236-2323.          In the mean time, here's to dreaming about beautiful summer sailing to come. Cheers!
