Summer has arrived to the midcoast of Maine!

Today it feels like summer has finally decided to join us here on the midcoast of Maine.  The sun is shining and Camden Harbor is starting to fill up with lobster boats and sailing vessels from all points.  We are very happy to be part of all the goings on down here on the docks.
   People from all over the globe are out strolling the streets, enjoying the sunshine, and joining us for a 2 hour cruise around Penobscot Bay.    I can think of nothing better than to get out on the ocean and enjoy the sun and breeze and a bit of sailing with family and friends.
   Our next special event will be our first full moon sail of the season on June 12th.  The Schooner Olad leaves from the dock at 7:15pm.  Watch the sun go down behind the mountains of Camden Hills State Park; then turn seaward and watch the moonrise over the islands of Penobscot Bay.  It should be a great time for all.  We're also looking forward to Father's Day and sailing with all your wonderful dads.  Your dad will get half off their 2 hour cruise with us if accompanied by a family member.
   A big thank you to everyone who has booked with us this summer for your special event.  We have many private charters booked for weddings, family events, company outings, and lobster bakes which are loads of fun.  The vessel Owl will be out this summer as well.  The Owl holds six passengers and is available from 2 hours to a full day, making it both intimate and versatile for you smaller group.
   We look forward to having you out with us on the Schooner Olad and the Cutter Owl this summer!

The 2014 season has officially begun!

We are happy to say, that our sailing season is underway!
We are once again the first schooner in Camden harbor to begin sailing with the public.  It just feels good to be at it again for another season of being out on the water.
With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, now is the perfect time to make your way down to the public landing to go for a sail with us.  The Olad will be running 4 cruises a day right off the public dock, 7 days a week and the Vessel Owl will be out sailing as well.  This weekend is looking great for getting out on Penobscot Bay.  We hope you join us!

Once again, thanks to those of you who have already made plans to come back this season!  We are thrilled to be a part of all of the weddings and special events you have planned.  We already have many booked from May to October.  Please call or book online if there is a special day you had in mind to sail with us aboard either the Schooner Olad or the Vessel Owl along with your family and friends.  We would love to take you out to experience the coast of beautiful midcoast Maine.

 

Schooner Olad is almost ready to cruise the beautiful waters of midcoast Maine with you!

We couldn't have asked for a better day yesterday, as we sailed the Schooner Olad to Camden from her winter berth in Rockland, Maine. The midcoast of Maine has never looked prettier than from the deck of a beautiful wooden schooner.  Our cruise took us by some of the celebrity mansions on Islesboro, by Warren Island where we have our lobsterbakes, and by the rocks where the seals lounge in the sun.  Even the porpoise were out enjoying the spectacular spring day. 

Today, the Schooner Olad sits at the dock ready and waiting for her next sail, and the crew is working diligently on the final touches to Vessel Owl, so that we can bring her to Camden, Maine as well. 

A special thanks to those of you who have already made plans to come back this season!  We are thrilled to be a part of all of the weddings and special events you have planned.  We already have many booked from May to October.  Please call or book online if there is a special day you had in mind to sail with us aboard either the Schooner Olad or the Vessel Owl along with your family and friends.  We would love to take you out to experience the coast of beautiful midcoast Maine.

Looking forward to Maine Coast scenic cruises!

Happy Spring!  The Schooner Olad and the sailing vessel Owl are in the midst of getting dolled up for the 2014 sailing season.  After a bit of snow earlier in the week, we have hit a stretch of beautiful weather and fit out is in full swing.  The wood masts are varnished and the interiors are starting to shine.  We are all very excited to get the boats back to Camden Harbor, unfurl the sails and go for a scenic cruise around the Maine coast in Penobscot Bay. 

We are anticipating the season to kick off mid-May for the Schooner Olad and Mid-June for the sailing vessel Owl.  Both ships will run through the summer into mid-October.  We are pleased that the summer season is already filling up with charters running from May all the way into October.  Please call or check on our website if there is a date you have in mind for your special event.  We love hosting wedding functions and have many lined up for the summer aboard both the Olad and the Owl.  What better place than on either of our beautiful wooden vessels to have your special day with family and friends while enjoying the views of the beautiful Maine coastline.

Whether it's a 2hr sailing cruise or a full day charter to more fully explore the Maine coast, we look forward to seeing you this summer aboard the Schooner Olad and the sailing vessel Owl!
