As part of our honeymoon in Camden, we decided to take a sunset cruise. The Appledore II had open spots on the cruise heading out on the evening we wanted to go, so we went for it. Everyone we interacted with had great personalities and senses of humor. Then, we headed out on the cruise. That alone would have made... More

Can't say enough good things about this boat and her crew. The Appledore herself is a beautiful ship, sturdy yet romantic. The crew was amazing; they were fun, energetic, knowledgeable and expert sailors. This was even more special for my now-fiancé and I, since while we were out on the water he proposed! It was perfect in every way, and... More

There is NO better way to spend two hours at sunset! Captain Jeff, Laird and Parker are gracious hosts (okay, they're hysterical) and excellent sailors. The experience brings out the mellow and happy in everyone and you'll love every minute of it. Don't worry if you suffer from sea-sickness, it's a smooth sail. Best of all, the second sail is...

What started out a little cool and wet turned into a wonderful evening sail! Chris and his crew were welcoming and cheerful. Seeing Curtis Island Lighthouse from the water is not to be missed. The departing storm clouds and the setting sun provided an ever changing backdrop to lively conversation and laughter. Don't miss your chance to see a new... More

Great fun on the Appledore. A beautiful ship in a beautiful location with a fun crew. The captain could frankly use a personality transplant - but once his jokes fell flat during the intro, we didn't have much more interaction with him. Parker and Jan, on the other hand were fun, funny, engaging and very interested in making sure we... More

A must do trip on any visit to Camden! We took in the sunset tour in July 16 as a group of seven. The crew made a great effort to get everyone involved and mixed with everyone.....try the Bloody Mary on board, it really is a great drink!!

As a first time visitor to Camden, I was fortunate enough to sail on the Appledore II last week. I was accompanied by three friends and we took the 3:00 sail...we loved it so much that we returned for the sunset sail that same evening. Captain Jeff was equally personable and knowledgeable; he graciously answered all questions and seamlessly entertained... More

Outstanding sailing on Penobscot Bay! Magnificent, charming, and fun crew! My husband was worried about getting seasick, but all went very well. No problems!

So glad that you both were able to fully enjoy the sail. Penobscot Bay is a semi protected body of water such that rough conditions are rare. At 86 ft Appledore is the biggest daysailing schooner in the area. Built for round the world sailing Appledore's gentle motion makes for great sailing. Thanks for the good words! More

Great experience with a great crew. They were friendly, took pictures of groups, served drinks, and were an added bonus to the overall beauty and experience of the sail. Would highly recommend going out on this boat. It seems sunset and first sail offer the best chances to view wildlife. Sailed the 3-5 and didn't see any animals, however the... More
