    Stop At: Schooner Appledore II Windjammer Cruise, 18 Bayview Landing Next to Camden Town Landing / I waterside of Peter Otts Restaurant, Camden, ME 04843-2249

    If you always wanted to sail your own wooden ship, this is your chance. The crew welcomes your participation - offer to help raise the sails and take a turn at the wheel. The Appledore II is a hard working, seaworthy schooner. She has sailed around the world, docking at many harbors along the way. Twice a year, she still sails the Eastern seaboard between her two home ports of Camden, Maine and Key West, Florida. Ask your crew about her history, some have made this bi-annual 2,000 mile sailing trip.

    Our day sail on the Appledore II schooner departs from Bayview Landing, taking you out of Camden Harbor. Camden is often called the “jewel of the Maine coast” which becomes clear as you sail past the impressive lighthouse, Curtis Island Light, dating from 1836 and into Penobscot Bay. Considered to be one of the top cruising bays in the world, Penobscot Bay will amaze you with its uninhabited islands, wildlife and views of Camden Hills and other coastal mountains dropping off into the sea.

    During your Camden boat tour, look along the shore for Mount Battie, historic inns, and elegant summer mansions of the rich and famous with their million dollar yachts. Watch lobstermen hauling in their traps. On a typical day, you may see porpoises playing in the water, ospreys and eagles hunting for fish and even the occasional whale. Watch for seals sunning themselves on rocks and cute guillernots, cousins to puffins, with their bright red feet, wobbling as they walk along the rocky shoreline.

    Quench your thirst with cocktails, beer, wine and soft drinks, all available for purchase during your sailing cruise.

    As Camden Harbor comes back into view, relax and feel the wind sweep through your hair as your memorable sailing ship cruise draws to a close.

    Duration: 2 hours

    I agree 100% with the very positive reviews of the trip itself-the crew is great and very professional. That portion would get a 5 star rating. I was extremely disappointed with the "corporate" side. I have been on this boat many times in the past....More

    I went solo on this adventure because I have never been on a boat before. The crew were very informative and kind. Worth the price and fun for the whole family.
