There are lots of sunset sailing options in Key West, but being New Englanders we had to go with a Maine boat....and we're glad we did! The crew was very friendly, as were the guests. The drinks were flowing, but mostly to a "mature" crowd, so well under control. The sangria was delicious, but my only very small complaint was there wasn't enough on board to serve everyone seconds. There was plenty of beer and other drinks throughout the cruise. Seating was plentiful around the boat. The Appledore is a bit tired in appearance, but well worth heading out to sea on for another beautiful Key West sunset.

We did the sunset cruise on the Appledore II for the 4th time & it was as good as usual.
Wine & sangria flowed and the sunset was beautiful. The crew is what makes this cruise special. They are always great to us and let my wife help raise the sails.
If you're looking for a romantic sail, this is the one. It's on the small side and never feels crowded.

My husband and I loved the sunset cruise on the Appledore II! It was fun and relaxing at the same time. The crew took the time to get to know the passengers and make sure they were having a good time. Plus, the sangria was delicious! Even if it is not with Appledore, make sure to take a sunset cruise when you come to Key West--it was the highlight of our trip!

Ben and Jeff really were great and accommodating for our trip. We were able to have a great time on the water while learning about the ship. I would highly recommend this to anyone and felt it was a great bargain.

We had a terrific sunset sail on the schooner Appledore V in Key West, Florida. This is the smaller of the two Appledore Schooners currently running sailing trips from Key West.
The wind was up and the young, competent and friendly crew, featuring the entertaining and energetic Benson, assured us of an exciting fast sail with free flowing drinks and delicious appetizers despite the brisk winds and beautifully heeling vessel.MUST DO in Key West ; choice of an afternoon sail as well.
