Recommended by the Concierge at the Marriott, this turned out to be a most enjoyable excursion. Lucky for us, there were only six people on the schooner and we could engage in conversation with the captain and the crew which was informative and interesting. Would do it again.

Everything within control of Captain Pete and his crew was exceptional - the cruise, their attentiveness and the plentiful complementary appetizers and drinks. The water was a little choppy, their was a brief rain sprinkle, and we saw nothing of the sunset, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I think it says a lot that the skipper of one of the Sebago catamarans decided this was the ideal way to spend Valentine's with his wife!
We'll have to try this again when the weather cooperates a little more.

We took the sunset cruise on The Schooner Appledore. The ship is a beautiful, old sailing ship. The crew was fun and friendly. The sunset was beautiful and we had a wonderful time. The crew popped champagne at sunset and we all shared a toast. There was just enough breeze so that the sails filled and the boat was moving quickly through the water. The sunset took on a totally new appearance from the water. It was well worth the cost. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Key West.

We had a wonderful time on the Sunset sail. We enjoyed the quiet sailing, the beautiful waves, and of course the sunset. So much more amazing when you are on the water. The crew was very personable and obviously knew how to sail. The snacks and beverages were simple but tasty. I would highly recommend the Appledore II sunset sail.

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.
