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.

While visiting Camden for two short days we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather by going on a sunset sail. We walked down to the docks and found various schooner booths set up side by side. We stopped at the Olad and were immediately greeted by two ladies who answered all our questions about taking a sail. We... More

My fiance and I had a great sail on the Olad. We went for the morning cruise since it was 2 hours long and we wanted to have time to do other things in our short day. It definitely was worth going on. Our Captain was Andy and The other Gentleman helping him was Jeff. They were both very personable... More

This is THE thing to do in Camden for sure. We really enjoyed our 2-hour afternoon ride on the Olad around Penobscot Bay. The boat itself is a very cool site and even as someone who gets seasick, I had a fine ride. The best part was the crew. The mate walked around the deck from group to group chatting... More

GREAT 9:45am sail today! Perfect winds, fun & knowledgeable crew. Not a cloud in the sky. Spotted porpoise. What a way to spend a morning in Camden. Would DEFINITELY sail with the Olad crew again!

My husband, sister, brother-in-law and I went for a two hour sail in the beginning of August on the schooner Olad. Not much breeze that day, but beautiful sunny weather and a beautiful trip! It's so cool to sail on a schooner and see the nearby sights. The captain and crew were friendly, informative and entertaining. Camden is a beautiful... More

Not much more I can say...the crew was excellent! Informative, entertaining. Views from Penobscot Bay were great. If you're looking to get out on the water for a fun time the Olad Windjammer Cruise is the way to go!

The harbor is the harbor... it's beautiful, as are many of the schooners that sail it. The difference in these tours is the people, and the Captain of this boat and his crew are a pleasure to spend time with, in our out of the wind.

Olad is one fine operation. Planning and executing our 6 hour sail + lobster bake in a private park setting was just perfect. Kudos to the team for making the experience great for all 22 of us, ages ranging from 9 to 70. The double rainbow was icing on the cake. Olad, the boat, is beautiful. Aaron, her captain, has... More
