We've done the Appledore sunset sail several times and have always enjoyed it. This year was the best ever! Captain Gil and has crew were friendly and personable and took good care of everyone. The food and drinks were excellent. I really enjoyed the sangria. The appetizers that they served were plentiful and delicious. All in all very enjoyable.

I had never been on a sailboat before, so i must admit i was a bit nervous.. But it was totally cool and a lot of fun.The captain and every one of the three other guys on the boat were professional and very nice. They stayed pretty busy the whole time dealing with the necessaries on the boat and keeping all of the passengers with a drink if they wanted it (water, colas,wine,beer,liquor) Just watching them working the sails was a real learning experience. Highly recommend

Every year we make it a point to do at least one sunset sail aboard the Appledore, and each year it is better than the last! Captn Joe, Matt and Russ do an amazing job attending to all the guests on board. There is plenty of delicious food and drinks to go around and the sunsets are spectacular. Looking forward to our next sail!

As we boarded and settled in I noticed two other sunset cruise ships ready for departure next to ours....ours (the Appledore) was smaller, yet had fewer people and more space for everyone--a very comfortable boat. Our crew knew the boat well and told us about, well, everything....Key West, the boat's history, weather and sailing in Key West, the seasons, and on...
I have read that some sailing ships do not actually 'sail', but this one sure did. The captain set the sails as soon as we got out of harbor traffic.
The food was great, caprese skewers, stuffed peppers, little hamburgers all very tasty and fun to eat.
Plenty of space to mingle and get pictures in the sunset while sitting at the helm. Drinks were served as much and as often as we wanted and, of course, the views of the sunset were spectacular on the water.
Highly recommend this boat, the crew, the Sebago company.
