Beautiful day on the water yesterday on the Olad. Captain Chris and crew were outstanding on a warm, windy day. Chris's knowledge and skill really stand out. He is a throwback to the "days of wooden ships and iron men." His passion for sailing and...More

Wonderful calm evening to go out on Olad. V. enjoyable sail even in light winds. Penobscot Bay is a superb playground to explore. Staff had been really helpful in booking us in even with our difficulties with mobile phones.

If you want a personal experience, choose the Owl. With just 6 passengers, it's like a private cruise. Aaron was a great captain who shared history of the area, wildlife, and lighthouse. His son was a fine first mate. One of the highlights of our...More

Sailing the Camden coast was a treat. Lobster buoys and lighthouse. Plus checking out the mega cottages along the coast was fun. Impressive excursion.

Capt. Matt was delightful. He was very knowledgeable about the boat and the Camden area. He had a great sense of humor and was very engaging. He was quite solicitous of an elderly woman and attended to her without causing her to feel uncomfortable. He...More

We had over 40 aboard the Olad for a wedding party, plenty of room especially if you are family.
