This windjammer was a delight to go on a two hour day sail. Pleasant crew and you are able to purchase, water, beer, soda and drinks while sailing through the beautiful, breathtaking waters of Camden Harbor and further. They also have a sunset trip where they serve snacks in addition to the above items. It is relaxing and you get... More

What a great time we had. All the kids helped hoist the sales. Later the captain let them take the helm. Peaceful sail. My husband and I went 19 years ago on our honeymoon and returned with the kids. It did not disappoint.

The schooner sails out of Camden Harbour. It's a nice small harbour and the ship is right at the dock. The crew, Captain Chris, mates Jan and Aurora are all fantastic. They do what ever they can to make your trip an enjoyable one. It's a great two hour cruise into the harbour , sailing by the islands and a... More

We sailed today on the beautiful schooner Appledore and had a fantastic time. It was blowing 20-25 kts and this boat just laughed at those winds. The crew (Jeff, Laird and Jan) was professional, personable and lots of fun. If you are in Camden, I highly recommend taking this 2 hour trip. You won't regret it!

The ship is beautiful and our afternoon cruise was relaxing and scenic, although we didn't get much beyond the bay, which I had hoped to do. I have to mention that the hard sell for tips was a sour note. We were told that the crew worked for tips, so your $45 ticket basically just got you on board the... More

At the end of each cruise the captain makes a brief and tasteful mention on behalf the crew. We take great pride in the exceptional service our staff provides. Gratuities are completely optional. More

This was a wonderful trip out in the harbor on the Appledore II. The day we went out it was not too windy and there was a musician on board playing accordion and guitar. He was very chatty and fun to be around. The boat was plenty big so as not to be crowded and there was a full bar... More

Sailed out of Camden for a wonderful, sunny 2 hour cruise - it went by so fast. The ship is so large that the waves were barely noticeable. I spent alot of time on the water growing up and always enjoy a chance to get out in the ocean or in this case the bay; this was a highlight of... More

We've done a few of these day sails over the years and this trip was at the top. It's a pretty big boat, so for those of you nervous or wanting to move around, this is your boat. The captain and crew were a hoot. Had a couple of drinks on board, well made Dark N' Stormy's. A good value-add... More

A trip to Camden with a sail would be like a trip to Maine without eating a lobster roll or a Whoopie pie. We experienced two hours of interacting with the fun, goodhearted crew, who wanted every one one board to have a memorable time. We met friendly passengers from around the world, viewed a "Top 10" sunset of the... More
