Several ships are available to take the public out to sea. Happened to pick this one and glad I did. The ship was comfortable, the owner/captain was very knowledgeable and they had staff on board taking pictures that were ready when you returned. They even lent me batteries when my camera batteries died. They had some of the tourists help... More

Very nice and informative crew with a nicely kept up schooner. Easy to find and easy to make reservations online or in person. We suggest online as the schooner fills up quickly. We took the 10 AM cruise. They do not serve food or drink so if you need or want something be sure to bring it.

If you check The Olad website, you'll see their new sailing vessel addition called The Owl, a gorgeous, sleek wooden boat built in the 1940s. My husband and I chartered the boat for a 4 hour private sail to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From reservations through the trip itself, everyone on the Olad team was super helpful and friendly. Our... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the two hour cruise on the Olad. The crew were very friendly and helpful and the boat is really beautiful. The photograph they took was included in the prIce and was a great memento of a fabulous day. I loved feeling that we were really sailing in the beautiful bay - it felt more like an authentic...

As part of our family reunion, we had 22 family members go for a sail on this schooner. The captain and his first mate were very friendly, accommodating, & professional. We wanted to have an engagement celebration and toast for my niece aboard, so we brought a picnic basket of snacks and champagne with us. Two hours is a perfect... More

We have a friend who planned a surprise wedding for his fiancee, and he chartered Captain Aaron's new schooner The Owl. The Captain took great care to keep the secret, and he gave a beautifully-worded ceremony for the couple at sea. Captain Aaron constantly entertains you will tales of sailing and historic details about Maine. An unexpected surprise was the... More

Enjoyed a two hour sail on the Olad on a fine windy day. The crew was informative and interesting. This is a great way to see sights on the Penobscot Bay-- a water view of Camden and the islands, close up looks at some interesting boats, getting near to wildlife. This is probably something you should do while visiting Maine's... More
