My wife, cousin and I took a 2 hour cruise today and had a great time. Captain Matt and his Mate Devon were excellent and informative hosts. The Olad is a beautiful schooner. We all highly recommend this as a fun and worthwhile activity!

Was a wonderful rewarding experience. We've never sailed previously. Our Capt Matt & 1st mate Devon were awesome. Very knowledgeable of the area & they kept us laughing. Fun. Worthwhile. Really refreshing.

JUST GO! Under full, gorgeous sail on the sea in even the lightest winds — the impressive drama of Olad is beyond words. Our annual must-do sail on the inimitable Schooner Olad during Camden, mid-coast Maine summer visit has always been a BIGtime vacation highlight....More

We didn't have a lot of wind but the trip itself was great. The captain(s) were awesome and informative. It was a perfect fall afternoon to be on the water.

A real indian summer day for sailing with great views of Camden and the surrounding islands. The crew surpassed themselves with stories of the area and their professionalism. I would definitely spend another time sailing with them!

Hi there! Our 2 hour sails are $43 for adults and $33 for kids under 12. Thanks for your interest in sailing with us!
Our family - 20 strong - is having a reunion to celebrate my 80th birthday. Is there enough room for a group of this size or would it be crowded and uncomfortable?

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