Just got off the cruise and Captain Matt and Zoe were fun, informative and entertained us with stories about life in Camden, history and the wildlife. With beautiful weather today, it was a fantastic trip and we’ll be back to do it again.

No wind_ no problem. It was such a beautiful day the absence of wind didn't diminish the trip. Crew was outstanding. Highly recommend a harbor sail aboard the Olaf.

Wonderful sail to celebrate a special birthday. Our Captain (Chris) provided local history as colorful and varied as the foliage, truly befitting a Peyton Place storyline. Highly recommended for visitors to the area!
