The crew was very personable the owner was on the cruise and came and talked to all of the passengers. Not a lot of wind but the crew made everyone feel comfortable. Wished that they would take pictures like the Olaf does.

Crew was fantastic. Captain was excellent for skill and navigation. Don't take this cruise though. We ran into fog 10 minutes into the cruise. The entire trip all we saw was fog. $45 a person. It's not the crews fault. But to pay that money and have the captain say tough luck.... Really I'm sure they could have found an... More

This cruise is a lovely way to see Penobscot Bay and take a peek at the boats moored in and around the harbor. The 2-hour sunset cruise is the way to go and it does book up so consider advance reservations. The crew is friendly, fun and seem to adore and respect their ship, the ocean and the passengers too!... More

The light wind and dipping sun made it perfect for an evening sail. The captain and crew of the Appledore were welcoming with a humorous and charming salty old pirate style. They served up stories, local info and the best 'dark and stormy' cocktails in Camden. We were tempted to go on one of the other boat trips but so... More

Trip wasn't as advertised. We left the harbor, sailed east, and returned. The only shoreline we saw was to the starboard side of the boat as we left the harbor. It didn't last two hours either, unless you count the check in time and the docking and disembarking. Crew did a good time job mixing with those paying for the... More

We selected the Appledore among the many options of comparable prices because their staff was so friendly and they are the only folks with a liquor license. I was holding my glass of champagne before we cast off! Captain Chris and crew Laird and Henry were there to point out wildlife, tell amusing stories, and answer our many questions. If... More

Many, many years ago some friends and I chose to sail on the Appledore because they had a bar on board. 20+ years later I still choose the Appledore and sail aboard her at least twice a year! The captain and crew are always great (thanks Jeff, Laird & Drew), they love both dogs and children, and serve awesome Bloodies... More

The Appledore schooner is the best way to explore scenic Penobscot Bay for a few hours. The crew is helpful, attentive and informative. They are also good sailors who like to put the sails up and show you how a schooner operates. Pet friendly, our dog loves sailing on this ship. A must do for visitors to Camden Maine.
