What better way to explore Penobscot Bay, with its rocky shoreline, famous lighthouses, seals, bald eagles, islands, lobster boats and hidden mansions. A variety of schooners leaves Camden harbor daily, between Memorial Day and mid-October for a two-hour sail. Our concierge recommends two schooners: The Surprise and The Olad, both known for their service, well-maintained vessels, and safety. We would like to suggest a private sail, completely catered with food, wines, spirits and your own private chef. Our concierge is happy to make reservations for Schooner cruises, please let us know when you make your reservation.

Private sail or sailing class on Penobscot Bay
What better way to hold a family reunion, a wedding reception, host a business meeting, or to just get away with a group of friends or on a romantic date. Relais and Chateaux Camden Harbour Inn offers two-hour, half-day and full day charters that can accommodate up to 21 passengers. Learn how to sail a schooner, enjoy a lunch prepared by your private chef aboard the vessel while sailing the bay or just soak up the sun and take a deep breath of fresh air and enjoy the Maine coastal lifestyle. Contact our concierge for more information or reservations.

Special Occasion Cruises
Together with Schooner The Olad, we offer special occasion cruises including a Father’s Day Cruise, A Full Moon Cruise and Maine Windjammer Cruises and Festival.
