Our first time on a schooner and it was to die for. had a great time with great crew. Beautiful sights on the way in and out of the harbor. Relaxing and rewarding trip!

Had a great experience on the 2 hour tour from 5 to 7. The captain (Aaron) and mate (Jeff) were great hosts. Very warm and friendly, spent the tour interacting with all the guests. The boat is perfect size -- big enough to be impressive, but small enough (max 22 people) to allow genuine interaction between the crew and guests.

My wife, daughter and I took the sunset schooner ride on the Olad. It was a very relaxing evening during which we passed a lighthouse, learned of some the historical homes along the shore, and saw several dophins. The captain and his mate were very accomodating and nice folks that kept the conversations going. They also took family photos of... More

We took the 2:30 cruise on this past July 4 - great trip! You can't visit Camden without taking a day sail from Camden harbor and our experience on the Olad was tremendous. At 2:30 there seemed to be good wind as we cleared the harbor and the crew (with help from volunteers) set the sails. The captain and crew... More

While visiting Camden, ME, I arranged a 2 hour sailing cruise on the Olad based on recommendations of our innkeeper. It was a great cruise. The crew was great and knowledgable and had many stories to tell about the area and local characters. I'd highly recommend this ship, not too big or too small.

Had a great experience on the Olad during the great schooner race July 5. We got to experience 7 hours of aggressive sailing Against 15 tall ships. The ultimate in sailing adventure. The crew was wonderful and friendly. This is my second trip on the Olad and I recommend their ship over the others in the harbor.

We are basically Schooner Olad groupies. We sailed with them for the first time a few years ago, and chartered the whole boat in September 2010 for our family and friends the day before our wedding. We're used to being a little cold out in the bay (not to worry - they give you blankets), but the East Coast heatwave... More

The wife and I went to Maine in May and it was rainy here and there, but on the day that we went aboard the Olad the weather was lovely and the seas were welcoming. Vibe: Immediately after boarding the Olad I was relieved to find that the Captain and first mate were easy going, outgoing and friendly. Aaron Lincoln... More

Great crew- fun and informative. Going in the middle of the day gave us the best wind and the fastest sailing. Nothing remarkable to look at during the sail, just a nice time out on the water.
