The most relaxing cruise you can take. The Appledore Star is the best time of your Key West vacation. The Captain is courteous and the crew is fantastic. With open bar and delicious finger food this crew made our voyage very memorable. And the schooner is beautiful. A must do

What a great time with Captain Russ and Mates Maddie and Wade! Smooth sailing, great hors d’oevres and drinks! We did the sunset cruise on a Monday. We were supposed to leave Key West on Wednesday but decided to extend a day. We booked the Appledore Star again!! Twice in a week!

We were lucky to have perfect weather for our sunset cruise. Smooth sailing, gorgeous views, and good drinks and snacks. We expected chips, etc. but got a cucumber slice with hummus, shrimp, a caprese skewer, and a tiny key lime pie tart. Nice little treats. Choice of drinks

Due to the weather we were unable to go on this particular boat, but we were moved to a catamaran instead. We had a great time! There was live music, food and drink. And of course a beautiful Key West sunset...the star of the show! Great crew and the boat was really nice!
