Wonderful sunset cruise! The crew and Captain were engaging, friendly and provided us good service. The drinks on board were good and reasonably priced.....the view as we sailed out and back was spectacular.

There were several schooners available for short sails in Camden Harbor, and we were happy we chose the Appledore. The crew was knowledgeable and efficient. They even wrestled a large man in a wheelchair on board. The captain introduced the crew, and directed some humor at the new guy. The weather was absolutely perfect, and captain made sure of a...

My wife and I took a cruise on the Appledore II a few days ago. It was a perfect sailing day, and this former US Coast Guard officer (but desk jockey!) had a fun time cruising on the Appledore II. The crew is very nice and drinks are good. It is a fun and relatively inexpensive way to spend several... More

What an awesome way to spend summer evening! Knowledgable captain, super friendly crew, beautiful sights, reasonable rates! We saw seals and porpoises, and there was lots of info on some of the places on the harbor. There was no sun all day, but somehow we managed to see a beautiful sunset just as it slipped behind the mountains!!! Very relaxing...... More

We were in Maine for a large family reunion that started on Saturday with a small group. We first ate lunch at Peter Ott's and then went for a cruise on the Appledore. It was a sunny warm day with just a bit of wind in other words perfect for a sail. There were 24 of us and another group... More

Captain Will, Pirate John and Jan were fantastic. We had a gorgeous, sunny day--perfect sailing weather. The crew was welcoming, funny and gracious. The course we took gave us the chance to see several island lighthouses that we'd have otherwise missed. Would love to join them in Key West in the winter months!

The crew is funny, nice and has lots of stories to tell! You feel like you are apart of the crew because they sometimes ask for help with the sails and rigging sometimes. Very beautiful views and excellent boat to see them with. The captain is very nice and does a great job with the sailing and pointing things out.... More

Great crew, great views. Definitely recommend. Went for the sunset cruise. Was beautiful. Dress warmly. They have lots of blankets for everyone and we were well taken care of.

This is a nice cruise. We did the sunset trip and it was very beautiful in quiet water (June 30). I DO think they would benefit from a bit of a program, though. This is mainly a quiet cruise "out and back" under sail...not much discussion of what we're seeing. I got the impression these young fellows don't know much... More
