The crew of the Appledore went out of their way to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The winds were high, and we took advantage and really had an amazing sail. Drinks were served (and refilled) and snacks were good. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Capt Joe & mate Colin put on a great show. Beautiful boat was perfect for an intimate sunset sail. Wine was really nice and the appetizers were even better. Won't find a nicer crew.

My husband and I came to key west for our first trip in 10 years without our kids. We didn't overbook ourselves with activities because our goal was to just relax and be unscheduled. The Appledoer sunset cruise was the perfect way to spend the evening. Being a real sailboat it was just complete relaxation, no loud boat motor or... More

This is authentic sailing. The captain actually sailed, instead of using the motor, even in light winds, tacking and announcing 'maneuver orders' to his attentive crew. He is a true sailor and we loved the experience of feeling on a real schooner, while they served us cocktails, wine, or champagne, with an assortment of cheese and crackers. We look forward... More

We will always remember the special time we enjoyed on this great trip. We went on the sunset sail, the weather was perfect, amazingly quiet when only powered by the wind in the sails, but fully entertained by the romantic sea shanties sang by Geoff. Plenty of drinks and snacks served by the attentive crew who seemed to really enjoy... More

We went to Key West for the weekend for our anniversary the end of February. Our plan was to take one of the harbor sails in a schooner on Sunday. That day was the Wrecker Races so no harbor tours were offered. So we opted to do that. Different classes of boats take part in this race. We chose the... More

Last night me and my wife set sail on the appledore ship with Connor, jess, and captain joe. First off, the crew were amazing and funny but at the same time well knowledgeable about their jobs. The sail itself was simply beautiful, probably the best boat ride I'd ever been on. The price was reasonable and well worth compared to... More

We sailed the Appledore Star on a sunset cruise Feb 19. Winds were mostly calm but the crew was confident they could give us a great cruise. My companions had difficulty walking from the check in point to the ship but Manager Rod came through for us and made it it a non issue. Captain Joe and mates Mike and... More

Wonderful sunset cruise with an engaging and knowledgeable crew. The smaller, more intimate atmosphere led to first hand experience lifting the sail and taking pictures at the wheel with Captain Chris. Loved talking to the other families and couples on board! The crew engaged in a pirate battle with another schooner with hilarious results :) I will be looking for... More
