Key West at its best. Sailed on Appledore II at 1:30 in the afternoon for two hours. The weather, the water and their hospitality were outstanding. She is an authentic historic schooner, built to sail around the world. This was my second sail on Appledore in the last three vacations in KW, and I had forgotten what a treat it... More

We went on on the sunset cruise aboard the Appledore II on February 15th. Our fantastic crew included Captain Katie, Phil and Jess V. While the sunset itself was less than spectacular- there was a storm front was coming in which made the sail incredible. The winds and waves created a sailing experiencing that my daughter remarked was as fun... More

This was an excellent sunset sail. The crew (Chris, Jessie and Phil) was fun to talk to and very attentive. The did a great job of making sure everyone's drinks stayed full. We will do the sunset sail on Appledore again next time we are in Key West.

Not only a great sail, but an even better crew! Nice, friendly and fun. Geoff Kaufman is also fantastic with music, shanty song, and vast sailing knowledge. Definitely recommend for everyone visiting Key West in the winter! Don't miss this one!

Had a great experience on this schooner. The crew was welcoming, friendly and very attentive. Included drinks and appetizer (cheese, crackers and fruit), plus an entertaining musician who played a squeezebox and acoustic guitar. Best of all, smooth sailing at sunset. Highly recommend!

The concertina was heard first. Then the voice of Geoff Kaufman singing chanties from the deck to the waiting passengers on the pier. Soon as we were aboard we were offered drinks. Champagne and wine seemed to be the favorites. When we cleared the breakwater the sails were unfurled and we were sailing for the remainder of the trip. Geoff... More

First time on the Appledore... and definitely not the last! My best friend & parents came aboard Jan '17 for the sunset sailing cruise- we had no idea what an incredible experience it would be. The staff is amazingly friendly and attentive- we never had to wait for a drink, which is pretty important for me! The views off Key... More

Our sailing adventure on the Appledore Star was fantastic! Captain and crew were attentive and informative. So a large thank you to Jason, Jess and Connor for their excellent service. They were able to give us history of the boat, the islands and nature information that made the trip for us. The food was great and there were a variety... More

We went on the 11AM to 1PM "Mimosa" sail. Didn't have a mimosa, but the bloody marys were outstanding. Capt. Chris, Phil, and Jess are very attentive and personable. We had a very enjoyable sail - hated to return to the dock. Highly recommend this sail on a traditional wooden schooner.
