All who visit Camden enjoy its picturesque harbor known for its schooners and windjammers. Every spring locals and visitors await the unwrapping of the boats as the weather warms and the captains of the historic fleet of day sailing schooners announce that it is time again to set sail! Schooner Olad is one of four historic wooden schooners (not to be confused with a Maine windjammer) that sail from the harbor from May thru mid October, taking guests onboard for a truly unique Maine experience.
