Our Official Last Sail of the 2016 Sailing Season!


It's official!!! The last 2 hour public sail of our sailing season will be this Sunday the 23rd at 11am. We believe we will be the last commercial sailing vessel doing public sails out of the whole state. First in, last out...that's how we roll. We hope you'll be able to join us before the end!  To all who have sailed with us, thank you so much for making our season a wonderful one.  We look forward to many more to come.  Cheers!

Another month left of sailing aboard the Olad

There's some great sailing days ahead as we move into fall in Maine.  The foliage change brings beautiful views off the bay, and characteristically the winds are also in our favor this time of year, bringing some truly wonderful sailing. The Olad will continue to sail 3 trips daily weather permitting with our last day tentatively being the 22nd of October.  We are hopeful the weather in autumn will continue with what summer was so nice to bring us.  For more information on our sailing trips, please visit our website or call us directly. 

Happy Sailing!

Maine Tradition


Join us this summer for an exciting day of sailing, island hopping, and fresh Maine lobster cooked to perfection just for you.  The Schooner Olad will be sailing to Warren Island State Park this summer for our guests to enjoy a Maine summer tradition: the Maine lobster bake.  Choose from four different dates in July and August.  We will board the Olad in Camden and take a sail to Warren Island State Park through the beautiful archipelago of Islesboro.  While we sail to the island, our crew will be preparing you a traditional Maine lobster bake including all the fixings.  Enjoy a hike around the island, eat all the lobster you can, and then board the Olad and sail back to Camden, Maine.  Our lobster bakes are BYOB, so you're more than welcome to bring along whatever you would like to enjoy on the boat and with your lobster feast.  There are many great places locally to pick up a bottle of wine, a local brew, or some fancy local sodas.

          In addition to our public lobster bake, you may also privately charter either the Olad which seats up to 22 passengers, or for smaller groups join us on the Owl which seats up to 6 people. It's the perfect trip for family reunions, company events, weddings, and birthdays.  We hope you'll be able to join us!

The Schooner Olad is having a photo contest!


The Schooner Olad has decided to have a photo contest!
Do you take great photos and love to sail? Than you have a great chance to win a charter for you and 21 of your friends aboard the Schooner Olad during our 2017 season(please no holiday weekends). Photos must be of the Schooner Olad while under sail in Penobscot Bay and must include a crew member or part of the sail rigging. So, get out there and start shooting! Just send your best photo to [email protected] with your name, phone number and date the photo was taken, and we will announce the winner the week after our last sail in October. The Schooner Olad will use these photos for our website and for promotional ads, etc. We are very excited to see all the entries, and I’m sure it’s going to be very difficult to make up our minds as to which one is the best.

Thanks for participating!
