Spring, summer, or fall, a cruise on the 86-foot Schooner Appledore - the largest
vessel offering short daysails out of Camden Harbor - is the very best way to experience
the coast of Maine.
The Appledore sails four times a day, seven days a week, past evergreen islands and
We routinely see seals, osprey, eagles and porpoises on
our two-hour sightseeing daysail adventures. Watch lobstermen haul their traps. Enjoy
the majestic vistas of the coastal mountains and glorious sunsets.
The Appledore departs from and returns to Bayview Landing at the heart of Camden
Harbor. The Appledore has an abundance of comfortable seating, plus a broad deck
you can stroll without ever having to duck the rigging. You are welcome to stretch
out and relax, help raise the sails or take a turn at the wheel and experience first-hand
the thrill of sailing a tall ship.
The Appledore is a traditional wooden windjammer that was designed for adventure.
Seaworthy and stable, she was built in Maine in 1978. She has sailed around the world,
and her exciting voyages have been chronicled in two books.
