Captain Aaron and Firstmate Max were terrific. We enjoyed a relaxing sunset sail, with amusing and engaging conversation with our hosts. A beautiful evening on the waters of Penobscot Bay.

They only do a few of them a year but they are well worth the extra money and time. Old school seaweed and Sea water lobster boil with a great sail .

My wife and I had the pleasure of a sunset sail on the Owl (the smaller boat of the fleet) with Captain Emily. What a great use of time! We enjoyed a comfortable sail on a classic boat and it's immediately clear that Emily is a skilled captain and wonderful host. I highly recommend this laid-back, charming sail. Many thanks... More

Also part of Olad Windjammer Cruises, we went out on the Schooner Owl with owner/Captain Aaron. Ours was 3 hours and $80pp. Money well spent. Aaron was very interactive and just added flavor to the whole cruise. He sailed us past a rock of sunning seals, we saw a pod of porpoises swimming along with us, sailed by Curtis Island... More

We were blessed and amazed as we sailed out of the harbor on the Olad. We got a birds eye view of how sailors before us navigated the waters. Captain Aaron had many interesting facts and was very engaging while encouraging us to ask questions and even join in with helping Devin hoist the sails., Perfect way to enjoy the... More

My fiance and I went out on a 12-2pm cruise on the Olad during our 2 week stay in Maine. Captain Aaron and his first mate Devin were wonderful. We sailed up from Camden almost to Lincolnville. The boat was beautiful, views outstanding. Devin shared his vast knowledge of the area with us and he was dead on with his... More

Amazing trip on a beautiful, restored 1920s sailboat with a wonderful crew, including the owner. Great antidote for a hot and humid day: it was breezy and cool on the water. Highly recommended!

We had a party of 8 and I wanted to possibly use the smaller boat but they said coast guard restrictions only allowed 6 so we would need to be part of the 22 group on the larger boat. I was going to do just a two trip around the bay but the women suggested I think about their "Lobster... More

Every time we have friends visit from out-of-town, we take them on the Olad. The crew is fantastic, and the boat is beautiful. This is the best way to see Penobscot Bay and experience the breathtaking Camden Harbor.

We took a late-morning cruise on the Olad with our 5 year old. We had perfect sailing weather and our son even got to help raise the sails!
