We went out on the schooner for a couple hours. It was great fun and we saw the beautiful Penobscot Bay. We also bald eagles, porpoises, a lighthouse and islands. The crew were very friendly and made a point to talk to everyone and answer any questions. They also told us about what we were seeing and the area. Very... More

We went on a 2 hour trip with this beautiful boat and enjoyed it a lot. The trip was very relaxing, we saw a lighthouse and few islands. We also saw some delphins, a bold eagle and a seal. The captain and the crew were great!

We took the Sunset cruise on the Appledore and it was fantastic! Relaxing, uncramped, friendly crew. Drinks available on board. This was a relaxing, enjoyable part of our stay in Camden. Highly recommend this boat!

We walked on the dock, just in time to sign up for the 3:00 cruise which started about 5 minutes after we got there. The day was beautiful, the boat was not crowded and the crew was fun and informative. A definite highlight of our stop in Camden.

It always helps to have a magnificent day, good wind, and a lively crew - and we had all three on our sail with Appledore in Camden. We were impressed with the safety presentation because it was informative but also set the tone for the afternoon with wonderful humor and playfulness that encouraged everyone to relax. The crew was very... More

Took the 12:30 sail on a clear, sunny Sunday. Lots of room. Smooth sail. Lovely views and picture opportunities. Friendly staff. Not overly expensive. We would do it again in a minute.

The Appledore took us on a nice peaceful 2 hour midday cruise around the harbor. The captain and crew were very engaging, informative and entertaining, taking the time to talk about the history of the boat, answering any questions we had and pointing out local landmarks along the way. It was obvious right from the get go that they are... More

We went on the sunset cruise and although it was foggy and cloudy, and no sunset, we enjoyed ourselves. The Captain and Crew, Sierra and Henry were fun and friendly and informative. The cocktails they made were fantastic and reasonably priced. This ship in the winter sails down to Key West, Fla we have put it on our bucket list... More

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...
