I wasn't really keen on doing this because I thought it would be too touristy. My husband and I were taking a weekend off, coming from Miami, and normally do not really interact with people we meet. But the passengers on this boat were like friends we didn't know we had. The crew was young and delightful. The appetizers were... More

We enjoyed our experience on the schooner. Cris and his crew took a lot of pride in what they do to maintain the boat, and to make sure the people on the boat were safe and comfortable. I would recommend that you sign up at the Key West Harbor ahead of time for the sunset trip.

Third year we've returned to sail the sea with the Appledore. Great crew. Amazing ship. You'll enjoy the sunset and fire at the pirate ship

The crew was extremely gracious and attentive to the needs of the group on the cruise. We not only enjoyed the cruise but learned all kinds of information about the harbor and region.

We want to thank captain Chris and his 2 crew mates for a spectacular voyage into the sunset off the Florida keys the other night. The conditions were absolutely perfect for sailing and the work, time and effort to make this a wonderful event, is an experience that needs to be seen. Thank you for your phenomenal hospitality for us... More

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
