The Appledore was a fun 2 hour cruise. The crew was engaging and entertaining. The Dark & Stormy was delish. The scenery was amazing, cannot wait to do it again! Great way to experience Camden Maine's surrounding waters.

The captain and crew of the schooner Appledore were professional, friendly and very amusing! The ship is very well maintained and a credit to her crew. We enjoyed a perfect sail across the bay while I chatted with Captain Chris about some of the finer points of boatbuilding and his beautiful ship The Appledore. I just wish I could have... More

We did this as a last minute decision and so glad we did! I imagine if you are in Camden when the crowds are you would not be able to just do it at the last minute as they might be full. You can reserve online. It was the most gorgeous day to go for a sail on the schooner... More

My favorite thing we did! Crew was wonderful, helpful & so interesting. Loved crew Member Aurora. She was extremely helpful in suggesting other things to do! Highlight was seeing bald eagle on one of the islands! Dress very warm! They do serve beverages on this sail. Also have a sunset one with dinner!

First time visitors, we took the sunset cruise. We loved the size (86ft) and character of the boat at first glance. The fact that we were encouraged to get up and move around the deck after we left the harbor was a big plus. Seating was comfortable, and the complimentary appetizers were delicious. The entire crew was a delight to... More

We sailed on the Appledore out of Key West last winter, and since we live in Maine, we wanted to do it again in Camden. A picture perfect sunset sail on Penobscot Bay...only the sound of the canvas snapping in the wind, and the leather and wood of a traditional windjammer...and the golden light illuminating the many islands of the...

My wife and I took a sunset cruise on the Appledore with our 16-years old nephew. Good wind, and a delightful tour around the Bay. The crew was great fun, the snacks and drinks were nice, and nobody fell overboard. All in all a terrific afternoon. Be warned, though, late September was very chilly at sea, so dress warmly !

This was our tenth time sailing on the Appledore. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves every time. The Appledore's history is interesting, the crew friendly, fun and down right entertaining, They also make the best Bloody Mary's. You can't go wrong here. Two thumbs up!

Day sailing. We had a great time. Crew was great. Not enough wind to really sail but we had a wonderful time.
