Join us for a sailing experience in Camden, Maine! We offer two-hour day sails or custom private charters departing from the picturesque Camden Harbor. Enjoy a relaxing cruise along the rocky shoreline of Penobscot Bay where you can spot hidden mansions, lighthouses, small islands, seals, bald eagles, lobster boats, and other magnificent ships! 

The Schooner Olad is a completely restored, classic sailing yacht built in 1927. Departing daily from Camden, Maine mid-May to mid-October, the Olad offers two-hour day sails for up to 22 passengers. The Olad also offers custom sailing charters for two hours, a half-day, or even a full day, making it the perfect setting for a family reunion, office outing, wedding, or get together with close friends! Be sure to check out our Special Events page where we offer many public special events throughout the season including sailing races, island lobster bakes, and lighthouse tours. 

The Sailing Vessel Owl is perfect for those looking for a more intimate sailing trip. Join us aboard our 6-passenger sailing vessel, which is one of the most versatile sailboats departing from Camden Harbor. The Owl was designed by famous yacht designer John Alden to be a fast and comfortable cruising boat. Built in 1941, the Owl is a timeless classic that has been rebuilt to the height of today's standards. The Cutter Owl is available for two and three-hour day sails, as well as customizable private charters for up to 6 passengers. With advance notice the Owl will sail you to Stonington for an overnight at one of the beautiful inns, to Vinalhaven for a romantic dinner and overnight at Nebo Lodge, or to a tent site at Warren Island State Park where we'll prepare a lobster bake for you! Did we say versatile? 

Come sailing with Captain Aaron Lincoln, a local Mainer with many facts and stories about the area, as well as the Schooner trade!

Spring Has Sprung at the Boatyard

The days are getting longer, the sun is warmer, and the Olad crew is busy at work preparing the boats for the 2023 sailing season! It's hard to believe our launch date is just a few weeks away, and we'll be sailing again by mid-May. It seems like everybody's calendars begin to fill up in the spring as summer plans are being formulated. We're looking at a busy calendar ourselves, with many special event sails including the Great Schooner Race, two public lobster bakes, and special Full moon sails all summer long. The Olad and Owl are the perfect setting for your summer adventures at sea, offering family lobster bakes on Warren Island, intimate weddings onboard, and relaxing sunset cruises overlooking the Camden Hills, and that's just the start! We work closely with our guests to make each trip as memorable as it can be. Spots are filling up for the 2023 season, so if you are planning a family event, business outing, or are interested in one of our many special event sails you'll want to start booking early!  

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from the Olad and Owl! We hope your 2023 is off to a great start. We enjoyed some time with family over the holidays and are excited for some winter fun in Maine, however, we’re always looking forward to sunnier days and full sails this summer!
