June Sailing Events

June is a great month to sail aboard the Schooner Olad and the Cutter Owl!  We will start offering our sunset sails aboard the Olad starting June 10th, which also happens to be the same day the Cutter Owl will begin it's regular full time sailing schedule.  Enjoy a great sail in Penobscot Bay whether aboard the Olad or Owl.

June 17th is Father's Day Show dad he's doing a great job by taking him for a sail aboard the Schooner Olad.  Dad will receive 1/2 off his ticket when accompanied by a family member.   Call us at 207-236-2323 for reservations.

To round off a great month of sailing, celebrate the Summer Solstice by taking a Sunrise Sail with us on June 21st aboard the Olad.  We'll be leaving the dock at 4:15am to head out into the bay to watch the sunrise on the longest day of the year.   We know how early that sounds, so we'll have baked goods and coffee on board to help ease the early hour.

We hope to see you out sailing with us!


Memorial Day Weekend Specials!

Our sailing season has officially begun!

To celebrate this upcoming holiday weekend, we are offering $5 off a ticket when purchased online using the code 18Ticket5 at checkout today through May 28th.  Buy your tickets for this weekend, or for a future sail with us this summer on either the Schooner Olad or the Cutter Owl and save.

Great Summer Sailing!

Are there really only 2 more weeks of August left?!?!
Summer has gone sailing by, but there's still time to get in a cruise aboard a beautiful sailing vessel on Penobscot Bay before August comes to a close.  We've had some truly exceptional days for sailing this summer, and we're looking forward to many more as we move into our late summer and fall sailing seasons. 
We've moved our sailing schedule in the evenings to accommodate the earlier sunset.  Both the Olad and Owl will be leaving the dock promptly at 6pm for a two hour sunset sail until September when our schedule will switch again.  As with any of our cruises, bring along your favorite snacks and beverages to further enhance the experience.  We'll take care of the rest!
Labor Day is soon upon us, with lot's of fun activities at the Camden Windjammer Festival.  We'll be sailing all weekend to get some great views of the beautiful windjammers making their way into Camden for the weekend's festivities.  We hope you'll be able to join the fun!
Happy Sailing!
