Sunset cruise aboard the Appledore Star schooner. Captain Jason and the crew, Jes and Conner, were very attentive to the guests' needs. I was hoping we would get to spend some time under sail, and we were not even out of the harbor before Captain Jason had swung the boat into the wind to hoist the sails. Only a minute... More

Great time on this cruise. We were looking for a smaller group, only about 25 passengers here. Not like the bigger boats with 60 or more. Very intimate and personal. Crew was all female and did great. They let you help if you want to join in. Sunset was perfect and the captain made sure our vantage point was unobscured.... More

The best experience I had in Key West. Jason as well as the rest of the crew were great. Knowledgeable, professional and courteous. Great selection of wine, beer and snacks aboard. Amazing views and sunset. Just a perfect night

The 5 family took the sunset sail. Great time. Organized and friendly staff. No wait in getting served drinks. Snacks were perfect. Cheeses, crackers and fruit. Saw lots of dolphins. Everyone had a super time. Sunset was perfect. Brand new ship hand Shaun did a fantastic job. Would take this trip again!

The laid back schooner cruise was nothing short of an unpressured friendly staff that allowed you to enjoy the excursions or just hang on the boat. We had a educated staff which made it just as much fun to those who went out on the excursions from the boat to some that stayed on the boat and got great knowledge... More

Amazing sunset cruise aboard this great example of a tall ship. The crew was fantastic and the boat ride was smooth sailing. Can't beat unlimited drinks either. I would recommend to anyone looking to get on the water for a nice sail!

So enjoyed our snorkeling and kayak tour on the Appledore Star. Captain Joe and his mates Ben & Amy were top notch. Capt Joe was very knowledgeable and answered our numerous questions about the boat and the navigational waters of the keys. We've snorkeled many times but Ben made it all the more interesting sharing his enthusiasm and familiarity of... More
