Sailing Take me Away

Fantastic trip on the Schooner Olad. Second time for us and we enjoyed both trips. The crew were very knowledgeable.

My family had never been on sailboat prior to this experience and we had a great 2 hour sail. The boat was beautiful, the weather was great, the crew was knowledgable, and the sights were pretty. It was cold out on the water so I would take a jacket but the crew did offer a blanket if you needed it.

Beautiful, well maintained boat. Knowledgable, personable captain. Comfortable. Not as many sites as I anticipated (one seal, some jellyfish, and one lighthouse from a distance) but the trip was beautiful and the captain's conversation helped us appreciate and enjoy our other activities on our trip. We experienced no seasickness. The complimentary was a nice plus!

One of the best experiences along the Maine coast for adults and children wanting to learn about the area, Camden, on the water. Our Captain, Matt, and Mate, Dillon, were very knowledgeable, hospitable, and interesting with their stories made it fun to be with. Stopping at Warren State Park an island in the area, seeing seals and other wildlife along... More

Sadly, the Maine fog rolled in and our Captain had to cancel the two-hour tour. No use sailing and seeing nothing but fog. Just to put a smile on our faces, he took us on a 30-minute harbor tour for free. We couldn't re-book but others will try another day. Friendly, competent folks. Nice shop as part of the company.

We had a fantastic time on the Olad. The owner is a local and full of knowledge about the area. Such a relaxing morning and fun to learn about the history of Camden and several of the boats there. Would recommend to anyone!

There are several choices in sailing cruises out of Camden. We chose this one based on the TripAdvisor reviews. The captain took great care of us and informed us about points of interest around the coast (such as who owns which homes). We also saw a variety of wildlife, including porpoises. A nice touch was that they sent us all... More

We visited the charming port of Camden, and discovered that there are several historic sailing vessels available for 2 hour sailing excursions. We chose to sail on the Olad based on previous Tripadvisor reviews, and we were not at all disappointed. It was a perfect day for sailing - sunny and with a brisk breeze, and our captain made the...

We enjoyed a two hour sail on this classic schooner. It was a little cool (55F) but the crew supplied blankets to those who needed them and took us for a nice sail on the bay. They even took pictures of everyone for a souvenir.

Captain Aaron Lincoln loves his schooner and he loves his guests. I've been out on the Olad for several 2 hour cruises, and also sailed aboard her for the Great Schooner Race of 2013. That was an awesome experience! If you like to sail, or just want a pleasant peek at the great Penobscot Bay, I recommend the Olad.
