We recently sailed on the Olad's last sail for the public for the 2014 season. It was a cold and overcast Sunday morning with tricky, shifting wind conditions that were expertly handled by Jeff and Steve. They were a very competent pair and fostered a feeling of security for non-sailing, land locked individuals such as myself. The atmosphere on the... More

I wanted to experience a classic sailing vessel and this was a great experience for my wife and me. We had great weather, quick checkin, and the crew of the boat were very friendly. We had medium wind and the trip would have been comfortable for almost anyone. I thought the cost was very reasonable.

Captain Matt was the best! and such a beautiful day! We saw a bald eagle and harbor seals! And all the wonderful homes on Curtis Island...I'm so jealous!

It was a nice morning (Saturday). Though the sun was shining, it was cool. However, blankets were provided. Friendly one man crew. Pointed out some areas of interest along the coast. The Captain was a load back gentleman and pleasant to speak with. He conversed the entire trip. A bit disappointed. The brochure indicated "lighthouses" but we only seen 1.... More

We went on the Schooner Olad a second time in September, 2014 with our relatives this time. We had a great cruise watching the sunset and the moon rising. We brought along some appetizers and wine and we all enjoyed the experience with Captain Aaron. Have a few great pictures but not sure how to post them.

If weather is good, this is a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Sailing in Penobscot Bay is always great. The crewi is good, there is onboard drinks for purchase. Be sure to check its website for parking info. Will definitely return next time we are in Camden.

I had a slight mix up with my time, Aaron had an unexpected opening in his calendar. He took my husband and myself out even though we were a tad late. I don't recommend being late as his boats are generally filled to the brim but this was a beautiful fall day, during the week! not summer! He evidently makes... More

We took an afternoon sail during windjammer weekend. The staff were friendly and entertaining. They really seemed to take pride in their work. We brought a small bottle of wine on board with their permission. Sailing on this ship was a rare treat and a great highlight.

Not much more to say that has not been said already...our captain and crew were very chatty and amusing...we had perfect sailing conditions... The FREE photo of each group was a nice and clever touch...
