Great Sunset Sail on the Pelican with Capt. Sweeney and First Mate Sarah!

We totally enjoyed our adult sunset cruise with Sebago. The crew waited on us! The food was delicious! We didn't want it to end! Best part of our visit to Key West!

This tour was the highlight of our stay in Key West! The crew was fabulous and trip wonderful. It was hot with little wind, but it was still a wonderful trip. Not over crowded, Not one of the "Party" boats (and there were several), just a peaceful quiet evening on the water watching the sun go down.

The schooner was quiet under sail. So peaceful. They kept handing us drinks and shrimp and cheese as we sat listing to the sails ruffle and the water splash and talking with the other people on the trip. Would definitely do it again. One note: if you have trouble sitting very low to the ground for extended periods of time,... More

The sunset cruise with Captain Katie and crew was fantastic, it was exactly what an evening cruise should be. The drinks were great, the crew was friendly, and the boat was not crowded like a typical tourist trip. It was a real pleasure to be on the schooner with full sails, a wonderful breeze, and an attentive crew to make... More

My husband and I took a wonderful sunset cruise on the Appledore V in Key West with Captain Katie, and crew Chris and Jess. The drinks flow generously and the snacks were delicious. It was a lovely night and the boat is gorgeous. We even lucked out and got to shut the motor off and actually sail! That's rare for... More

We boarded the Schooner out of Camden Maine! The captain Chris and crew mates Simone & Henry were professional and engaged all the passengers in conversation. All of our questions were answered in full. The winds where light but Capt'n Chris found some wind to fill the sails! We also got to see an few harbor seals and porpoises! I... More

Our family of 5 enjoyed the schooner and the crew the day we went out to the reef. Excellent accommodations and service....way better than a large overcrowded caterman. Personal service, great staff, and a wonderful relaxing trip. Thank you Captain Heather for your help with my mask...I'm new to open water snorkeling and she was so patient and kind to... More

We had a peaceful and beautiful cruise eon the Apple core out of Camden Maine. The crew was friendly and informative. The boat was magnificent and the scenery amazing. It was wonderful to glide silently across the waters. We high recommend it and be sure to do it at sunset.
