We were on the 12:30 cruise with Captain Chris, and crew members Simone and Matt, all of whom were very impressive, friendly, and informative. As a passenger, you can volunteer to... read more

We had a nice quiet afternoon aboard the Appledore. The crew were knowledgeable and friendly. Unfortunately, there was very little wind so we mostly motored along and the crew either sat quiet or mingled with the other passengers. My husband and I were hoping for more of an explanation of what we were seeing or a tour or explanation of... More

We were on the 12:30 cruise with Captain Chris, and crew members Simone and Matt, all of whom were very impressive, friendly, and informative. As a passenger, you can volunteer to help each crew member hoist the sails. Our day was perfect, the wind was perfect, and our unexpected bonus was encountering the beautiful 3-masted schooner Victory Chimes out of... More

A great and enthusiastic crew and a gorgeous large wooden schooner, The Appledore, made for a wonderful cruise on Penobscot Bay in Camden Maine. You really can't ask for more as this hard working crew tend to all needs. Even on board cocktails, soft drinks and beer. It is a bargain experience to sail on a tall ship like the... More

Fabulous trip! The crew and captain was very accommodating to the family. They took the time to engage the family in working the lines and explaining to us how the sailboat worked. It was awesome and definitely a must to do while you are in Camden.

Awesome, the real deal, sails full, sun setting smiles on the faces of my family simply can't be beat! Oh wait is was, crew was entertaining, Captain was awesome, conditions perfect! A yearly excursion to Camden won't be complete unless we are on the Appledore!

Beautiful ship and a friendly crew. Went out on July fourth in the morning. There were only two other groups so it was nice for the children on board to have room to move around and they all got turns steering the boat. The staff was very friendly and pleasant. I thought we were going to see more than one... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our sunset sail. The captain and crew were wonderful. They spoke about the schooner and entertained us with personal stories of their experiences. We had a great time and would recommend this two hour excursion for anyone who loves an adventure. The coastline was beautiful and we loved seeing the loons and porpoises in... More

My family and I took the 12:30 sailing cruise while in Camden, and had a wonderful time. We brought three children, ages 6 weeks to 2 years old, with us, and they enjoyed the cruise too. The kids were given life jackets, and with the size of the boat, our toddler could walk around. He even got to steer the... More

My wife and I were in Camden for the night and hopped aboard on a whim 5 minutes before they set sail for the two hour sunset cruise. The crew was great as was the vessel. The crew was more than willing to chat and answer questions but also knew not to say too much and let the scenery be... More
