Schooner Cruises

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.

Complimentary Sunset Sail on Schooner Surprise*

At Camden Harbour Inn we believe your stay at our hotel is so much more than a room. We believe your travels need to be filled with unique experiences, things you will share with your family and friends when you are at home or immediately on Instagram. Sunset sails are the most desirable and usually sold out far in advance. Sunset sails on the oldest schooner in the harbor are rare and complimentary available when you book two-nights at Camden Harbour Inn. Schooner Surprise will exclusively sail out with our Camden Harbour Inn guests, when the sun slowly sets over the hills. Our chef prepared delectable small bites and Prosecco is onboard to make a toast on a beautiful vacation in Camden Maine.

*Sunset sails are complimentary when you are staying two-nights based on availability and weather permitted. No restitution or discount is offered when the sail is canceled or already booked. Reservsations are on a first come basis.
