Captain Chris, Phil and Jess are fantastic! I highly recommend the Appledore II, and make sure to ask for Chris, Phil, and Jess. I would not do a future trip without them!

The Appledore was a fun 2 hour cruise. The crew was engaging and entertaining. The Dark & Stormy was delish. The scenery was amazing, cannot wait to do it again! Great way to experience Camden Maine's surrounding waters.
