Seabirds, Sailing, and Lobster Bakes

   Schooner Olad will be welcoming aboard the Friends of Maine’s Seabird Islands this Friday the 18th on our 9:45am sail! FMSI will be joining us aboard the Olad to teach us about the local seabirds that frequent the area as well as nest here. Please join us for this two hour sail as we scout out Penobscot Bay for seabirds and other wild life. This is sure to be a great educational event for all ages.

Also coming up in our line up of special sails this summer, the Olad will be hosting two public lobster bakes. We leave from Camden Harbor for a 1/2 day sail out to Warren Island State Park and while you explore the island, the crew cooks a wonderful lobster bake for you with all the fixings. Unfortunately, space is very limited. Luckily, we also host private lobster bakes on both the Olad and the sailing vessel Owl. You can charter either sailing vessel for a 1/2 day sail and have a delicious lobster bake on Warren Island, Maine’s beautifully secluded State Park in Penobscot Bay. The Owl seats six, making it the perfect daysailer for smaller families and groups who want a memorable Maine experience. And for your larger groups up to 22 people, the Olad is perfect. Sailing, lobsters, beautiful island…it’s the perfect day on the Maine coast.
