The Schooner Appledore II a traditional 86-foot wooden Windjammer, offers a variety of cruises out of Camden, Maine, and Key West, Florida.

In the summer, enjoy a sightseeing daysail on Penobscot Bay, where you can observe first-hand the wildlife, islands, lighthouses, lobster boats, and beautiful coast of Downeast Maine. In the winter months, join us during your Key West vacation on the waters of the Caribbean. Go snorkeling in  North America's only living coral reef or relax on a tropical sunset sail. The Appledore also offers charter sails for weddings, parties, family reunions, or any event that would be fun at sea.

From the moment you set foot upon her solid deck, you sense something special about the Appledore. You are taken with the massive spars, the symmetry of the halyards and sheets coiled on their pins, the glossy grain of varnished wood. Nothing stirs the romantic heart more then the Appledore’s classic wooden hull whispering its way into the seas. The Appledore – more then a boat, it’s a tradition.
