  • Penobscot Bay: Historic Schooner Day Sailing Trip

    1. Penobscot Bay: Historic Schooner Day Sailing Trip

    Experience one of the top things to do in Camden sailing along Maine's magnificent rocky coastline. Climb aboard the elegant Appledore II, a historic schooner. Feel like an adventurer from the 19th-century while enjoying state-of-the-art accommodations onboard a modern windjammer. Stroll along the wide decks as you take in the sights without needing to duck beneath the rigging. With a capacity of only 49 passengers, there is abundant seating to make yourself comfortable for this intimate sailing trip. Enjoy the chance to sail your own wooden ship as the crew welcomes your participation. Offer to help raise the sails and take a turn at the wheel of this hard-working, seaworthy schooner. Ask your crew about the history of the boat which has sailed around the world, docking at many harbors along the way. Twice a year, she still sails the Eastern seaboard between her 2 home ports of Camden,...

    We went out near the end of the season so the boat was less than half full which made for a great experience. The captain and crew were all awesome! Excellent interaction and service. Loved it!

Excellent! Crew was very polite and helpful including the host checking in guests on the pier. Trip (voyage?) was everything our group wanted - comfortable, interesting, and well guided by Capt. Shawn. Shawn had a lot of knowledge about the vessel, the area, and the physics of sails and wind. Our group of seven enjoyed the entire excursion immensely! Thank you all for the great experience - Shawn, Andy, & Tristan.

the captain and crew were so personable and knowledgeable. it was a great trip. i tecommend going out Sun at 10 AM. fewer people and more time to interact with captain snd crew. delightful

Fun and relaxing tour of Penobscot Bay in a windjammer. New experience for this old lady. Interactive if you volunteer to "hoist the sails matey". The crew was very accommodating.

Very relaxing, crew was friendly, didn't see much because of the fog but they can't help the weather. Did get some good pictures on the way back!

Loved learning about sailing and spending some quiet time on the bay.
