One of our favorite moments in Maine! The sales man and his dog, Schwab, was friendly and everyone was wearing masks as we waited in line and boarded 😎 Captain Gus delivered safety and sightseeing info in an eloquent and comical way. The crew (Colleen and Robby) was great at keeping our drinks full and answered all of our questions. My boyfriend, who has sailed all of his life, was amazed by the boat and equally amazed by Captain Gus's ability to sail into and out of the harbor "without a wrinkle in the main sale"! Totally reccomend

This is the best sunset sail excursion out of Camden ME. The crew is more than friendly and the bot is a classic designed schooner. The wind happened to be blowing beautifully for the sunset cruise and the sailing was superb as sailed by our Captain. This was our 3rd sail in Camden and when we were in Key West, it was there waiting for another beautiful tropical sunset cruise.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. They provided interesting information about the history and current practices of sailing in the area that was fascinating to listen to but didn't take over the experience for the passengers who just wanted to enjoy the view and the time on the water. The beverages were delicious and reasonably priced.

I will highly recommend the Windjammer Classic Sunset Sail to any friends/family visiting the area and my wife and I will definitely book another trip with them next time we're in the area.

This was a perfect way to spend the evening in Camden. The views of the harbor and Penobscot Bay at sunset were spectacular. The crew was amazing and it was evident that they thoroughly enjoyed sailing; you could tell it was a passion and just not another job. They were very attentive to customer needs and questions, and they made the experience tremendous fun. It was one of the highlights of our summer trip.

We had a beautiful evening aboard the Schooner Appledore and Captain Shawn and crew (Mackenzie, Andy, and young Shepherd) were excellent. Beer, wine, and cocktails were available immediately and throughout our sail, and our crew was very informative and friendly. We highly recommend adding this to your midcoast travel itinerary! Book a dinner reservation before heading out, as restaurants tend to be full by the time you disembark.

What a fantastic experience! Don't hesitate to book this. A full two hour cruise with the nicest crew imaginable. Our cruise was out of Camden, Maine. Unfortunately it was cloudy so the sunset bit didn't really happen, but it didn't detract from the joy of sailing and being with wonderful people and feeling the sea breeze on your face. The raising and lowering of the sails was really fascinating and our skipper, Gus, did a fantastic job telling us all the safety stuff before we left. I really liked that he didn't give a running commentary the whole time and just let you be in the moment or chat with other guests. The crew was very willing to answer questions if you had them. They were also extremely polite and attentive in getting you any drinks you required. The drinks were not overpriced which was nice. It got chilly the further out we went, so bring a warm layer or a wind breaker to wear. They did provide fleece blankets which was a nice touch. All in all, I would definitely do this again. Oh, use the bathroom before you leave unless you're OK with going down a steep ladder backwards to use the one below deck....

A few years ago we enjoyed this cruise. It was 5 star then and 5 star this year. The 3 person crew hosted 49 passengers,serving beverages and outstanding appetizers while guiding the boat for a perfect sunset ride. Anyone visiting Key West should always book this cruise. It has to be one of the very best experiences available. Also one of the most $$$ reasonable attractions as well.

Lovely experience, especially for one (me!) who loves sailboats. This beauty (Appledore II) was built in Maine by a craftsman/sailor. She sailed straight and true, without anyone at the helm! Plenty of room on board, powerful drinks mixed right on board. Lots of good explanations from our Captain about how the sails work to drive the boat forward. The crew did everyhting they could to make our voyage enjoyable. Several children on board, they loved it. One girl, aged about 11, when she was steering Appledore back to harbor, was asked by our Captain ‘what would you like to do now” she replied ‘turn around and sail forever’. That pretty much sums it up. We waited until there was a forecast for sun and partial cloud, and we were rewarded with a magnificent sunset. A great adventure, highly recommended.

** My original review went under the Key West location** We did TJ Camden Maine Sunset Sail.

The water was absolutely calm, warm summer wind on our faces, drinks (wine in hand) and we chased the sunset. The crew Colleen, Phoebe and Captain Gus were awesome 😎 Exceptional service, personable, funny and knowledgeable with willingness to share. Booking online is available however we called. The crew are ensuring staff and guest safety during these uncertain times but still making the experience enjoyable. Once out of the Chanel we were sailing 💕⛵️ We saw seals, loons, ducks, Egrits and Cormorants. Truly an amazing experience. Too short I could could sail all day around Penobscot Bay! It was breathtaking to see the Maines majestic coastline from the water. Being a Mainer I can’t believe it’s only taken 30 years to do this! We will surely be back to sail on your beautiful vessel. ***ladies dresses fly up, perhaps bring a light coat. Thank you 😊

Great sail with a fabulous and attentive captain and crew. Added bonus of a photographer onboard really made the special event a highlight of our trip. Camden parking is a zoo, so no joke, circle the lots like vultures at least an hour before the sail…..reasonably priced and such great memories of our trip to Maine.
