Schooner Olad also offers custom charters. Whether it is for two-hours, a half day, or a full day, Olad is the perfect place for an office outing, family get-together, wedding, or wedding party. Catering is available.
Eco Friendly Tourism. I love to sail and the fuel bill shows that. I have never used more that 200 gallons of fuel in a season. Some boats, in the harbor, burn that in an hour. Instead we rely on Mother Nature, and we almost always have breeze in Penobscot Bay.
Boat Trip Information
What will we see?
It really depends on the trip however, every trip we will see a lighthouse, other traditional sailing vessels, visiting yachts, Maine's rocky coastline, mansions, marine wildlife, and of course seagulls. In addition to shore birds, we often see seals, bald eagles, guillemots (a cousin to the puffin), and the occasional whale. We often get to observe a lobsterman hauls his traps and once in a while we get to see a rich and famous person on their mega-yacht.
Where will we go?
We are always are going to sail where the wind is best. That may mean that we hug the shoreline and go toward Lincolnville beach or Indian Island lighthouse or we may head to one of the thousands of islands that grace Penobscot Bay, like Mark Island a bald eagle rookery. We may go and look at some mansions that you can only see from the water and then make up some gossip. But, we will always go where the best sailing is.

Why sail? I used to go to the the ocean and it would help me unwind from stresses of life. Finally I decided why not spend my days working in the environment that I loved.
