Great sail boat. Staff is extremely freindly and willing to share their knowledge on sailing. They also allow personal food on board so after helping lift the sails a small meal is allowed to be eaten on board as you relax and enjoy the views. The crew is not from around the area so a "tour guide" of what you see around should not be expected, nor to recieve any suggestions on local things to do. Overall a great time on a boat at a very reasonable price.

A group of 12 of us went on a 2 hour sailing cruise along the Fort Myers Beach - the weather was wonderful and we had a great time! The captain and crew did a super job - crewmates interacted with the passengers and asked for their asisstance with sails and were very informative. I would definitely recommend this sailboat outing to others.

We visited the Appledore V crew in late January. The crew made us feel welcome and comfortable. Neither my friend nor I have ever been on a schooner. Since I had a million questions they eagerly answered and them and explained the working parts and functions of the ship. Would recommend the crew to anyone who asked! Way to go!

We went a couple weeks ago and had the very best time. The crew was great and had
guests take part in the sailing experience. The boat is beautiful. I highly recommend
this 2 hour trip. Nothing like the wind powering a boat!

On a beautiful day in Jan the crew of this schooner taught us about the boat and took us out for a 2 hour cruise in the Gulf. It was lovely and well run and well worth the time and money. Great restaurant right at the dock and a well stocked gift shop.
