We took a cruise aboard the Appledore in August/September 2014 for a friend's wedding (our friends were married on the ship). Everything was great and the crew was attentive and entertaining. If you're in Camden, this trip is well worth it!

Got a chance to do a sunset cruise. So much fun. Crew was fabulous and the owner was on the cruise as well. Very fun conversation with him. Crew was very knowledgable about the schooner and it's history. Beautiful sunset and adult beverages as well.

A lovely time was had by all! The "crew" was friendly, engaging, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Captain Will, was informative, and the two "mates", energetic and attentive. It was a picture perfect day, and quite frankly the fastest two hours I have spent in some time. The bald eagles were out and the local flavor added by the crew was fascinating.... More

When you make a trip to Camden you really should take in a two-hour day sail. I have taken a day sail with two different crews in Camden, but I'd have to say that the crew of the Appledore II is the best one in Camden. The crew is knowledgeable, nice, and funny. They answer all questions, even the dumb... More

The Schooner Appledore Windjammer Cruise was a great way to see Penobscot Bay on the water. The ship was uncrowded for our morning cruise, and we were free to walk around on the boat at any time. Appledore was the largest vessel sailing out of the harbor which meant a comfortable ride, that got going once we picked a up... More

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.

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.
