Whether you go alone or with a group the Schooner Olad is one of the best ways to experience Penobscot Bay. Incredible views of Camden's inner and outer harbor. Be sure to bring a jacket for it can be chilly out on the water, even on a warm summer day. We love the sunset cruises.

What a beautiful day we had sailing on the Olad! The captain was wonderful! He made everyone feel so comfortable. The deck hand was very helpful and they gave you a photo when leaving the vessel.

My morning ride on the Olad Schooner was just the best way to experience the beauty of Maine's Central Coast. With bright blue sky and mild but sufficient winds, we glided along the water with Captain Aaron's comfortable ease in handling his boat while sharing insights of the area with all of those aboard. I also appreciated his and his... More

We had a wonderful tour with Emily as our captain on the owl. We left at 5:00 and she took us around to see a lighthouse and we very much enjoyed the view. This is a small boat that seats 6 and the night that we went there were only two of us so it felt like a private charter!... More

This was a really fun excursion, despite the fog and choppy water. The captain and crew were congenial and very knowledgeable. They take your photo and give you a print...a nice touch. I got some great photos with my own camera, and a beautiful perspective of the Maine coast.

We had a wonderful time on the Olad. The captain and first mate were knowledgeable and entertaining. The ship is beautiful, intimate, and fast - a true schooner experience. We passed another schooner that was filled the brink with passengers that seemed more of a shuttle people around kind of cruise. We did the sunset cruise which was gorgeous and... More

What an enjoyable cruise. Captain Aaron and first mate Dillon were both informative and very friendly. The Olad is a very beautiful ship that was a joy to sail on. The sail was to some lighthouses around the area and a stop at the break water going into Rockford. The only disappointment was that there was maintenance going on the... More

Took the boat out on a warm, but not windy day. So, he had to use the motor most of the time. We saw dolphins and lots of birds. Great tour of the homes on the water front. Loved it.
