Booked the Olad for a sunset cruise with captain Matt and first mate Max. .Had an amazing time. Both were personable and entertaining. We were allowed to BYOB and food, so what goes with a sunset...champagne cheese and crackers. We were given a souvenir of our trip, a 5x7 photo of the two of us. Best seats aboard are in... More

Our niece and her husbands were visiting from Washington DC so we decided to take them on a cruise of Penobscot Bay. The schooner Olad had openings for the next day when we wanted to go sailing. Luckily the weather was fantastic, sunny with a moderate breeze. After motoring out of Camden Harbor we sailed at a brisk pace out... More

Great sail on the Owl with Matt. We would highly recommend this smaller sailboat for a more intimate experience, as opposed to a large group it's designed for six passengers or less. We were fortunate to have a private sale with just the two of us. Make sure that like the person that you go with!

Went for a two hour morning sail on the Olaf with the captain/owner of the boat. Very comfortable boat and he made the trip enjoyable with his stories if the area and local fishing tales. Worth the time and money

Great trip! Operated by the owner who is very experienced and an amateur historian of the area, people and places that you see.

We had an amazing time today on this trip, a two hour sail. The captain keeps us entertained by telling stories and letting us know about our surroundings. The first mate is great as well. We immediately signed up to go out on a 6 hour sail the next day because we had such a great time. I would highly... More

Really great afternoon sail. The 89 year old schooner is in terrific condition and expertly crewed. We had good strong wind today for the full sail experience. We have previously sailed with the larger Appledor, which we enjoyed also, but Olad gave a more genuine sailing experience.

We had a party of 6 in all age groups. The staff went out their way to make the two hour sail pleasant and informative. It was a beautiful day on the water.

A great experience! We booked online the night before and showed up the next morning - easy scheduling, extremely friendly folks, and a relaxing and informative short sail. Would definitely recommend this company for a simple, no-hassle excursion in the Camden area.
