Had a perfect day for the 3:00PM cruise. Wind was up and made for a great sail. Captn' Chris and crew took good care of us. Friendly and helpful, they answered our inquiries about the boat and the area along with making sure we were warm and had refreshments. Booked this the morning of the cruise, good thing it was off season as I hear they can be quite busy. Loved every minute of it. Even got to have some good conversations with some very experienced sailors on board. Would do it again.

This is a lovely sail and the captain and his mates were great. We, unfortunately, had a cloudy day and, therefore, the wind chilled us to the bone. The crew literally wrapped us in five blankets (and would have given us more if we wanted) so that we would be comfortable and they will make you a Bloody Mary or whatever else you may want to imbibe. I would do it again if the sun comes out.

Our party of six really enjoyed the sunset cruise. Calm seas and gentle winds in Penobscot harbor made for a pleasant and pretty cruise. The crew was competent and I enjoyed watching them work. The sunset cooperated, so it was a very nice evening out.

My eleven year old daughter and I had the perfect experience on the Appledore last night - from the friendly staff to the accommodating Captain (he answered my many questions and desire for pics), to the perfect amount of wind to see what she can do, this sunset cruise was relaxing and a great way to see Camden from the ocean view while watching the sun go down over the mountains! Thanks Chris, Jan and Jess! Highly recommend!!

We took a late afternoon sail, so we had perfect wind. The owner of the ship happened to be on our cruise, as were the mother's of the captain and first mate. It was a perfect way to see the Maine shoreline, and catch a glimpse of a lighthouse. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages were available for purchase on board. The crew were friendly and fun - and very informative. Definitely a not-to-be missed experience.
