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.

One of my "must do's" during our visit to Key West was ride in a schooner and help to hoist the sail. I did both! Captain Katie and her crew were awesome! Because of the smaller boat, we enjoyed conversations with all the crew. Phil was especially friendly, and even remembered us the next day when we saw him on... More

To have the opportunity to sail on a schooner boat is something you cannot miss. No engine running, no diesel fuel stinking up the place. Just the smell of the ocean and wind in your hair. Our captain was Katie. She was a great tour guide and a professional with handling the boat. Our sunset cruise was so relaxing, worth... More

This was a nicely done trip, with a competent and friendly crew who didn't make you feel like an imposition. The food platter was really enjoyable, with fresh fruit and veggies, as well as shrimp and other seafood delights. Their sangria was excellent, and they even gave us to-go cups! Great views, great fun, go do it!

When we got on the boat we noticed that there were not many other guests on the boat. Maybe 30 or so. We all got some drinks and some cheese and crackers and then we went sailing. During the trip we saw other boats packed with people and with loud live music. We knew immediately that we had made the... More
