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

Our two nieces were visiting Maine from Connecticut and we took them on the Olad in Camden for a two hour sail. It was just great. The two men were very friendly and knowledgeable, LOVED the photo given to us at the end of the sail. That was a nice touch. Camden is a beautiful place to visit. If you... More

While in Camden, I decided to go on the Olad and it was a lovely morning. We motored over to the rocks, where we saw seals and porpoises and sailed back around the Curtis Island light house. The crew was extremely entertaining and knowledgeable about the area. It's a bit pricey, but is definitely something to check out.

We had not planned to include a water excursion in our trip to the Maine coast but this looked like fun, so we gave it a try. Good move! Seeing the harbor and Penobscot Bay from the water was a huge addition to our visit, especially on such a beautiful sailing vessel. The crew was both entertaining and professional, making... More

We went on the sunset cruise from 7-9pm. The cruise was fun and relaxing. The Captain and mate could not have been nicer. The price was reasonable and I'll do it again next trip.

When the sailor says "Oh boy!" you know you are in for a ride! We chartered the 6-seat Sailing Vessel Owl, the small sailboat in the Maine Schooners fleet, for a 3 hour cruise around Penobscot Bay. We thought it would be a peaceful, quiet float and brought a picnic along for on-board treats. But the wind was up that... More
