The perfect Key West sunset sail. Picture yourself on the deck of a romantic 2-masted wooden schooner. Wind blowing in your hair, the tall ship sails into the sunset past the southernmost point of the U.S.A
Our tall ship was hand-built in the same tradition of schooners since the 1700s. This 86’ windjammer has circumnavigated the globe. Today the Appledore II gracefully skims into the Atlantic in search of the perfect sunset.
Feel the sense of adventure as the crew hoists the sails. Participate in this age-old tradition by helping raise the sails. Take a turn at the wheel and feel the exhilaration of being at the wheel of a traditional tall ship.
Summers are spent sailing around Camden, Maine and winters are here in tropical Key West. Twice a year Appledore II sails the 2,000 mile ocean voyage between her two homeports. Some of the crew on your tour have made this exciting journey – ask them about their adventures.
With the painted sky as an exquisite backdrop, your sunset sail takes you past Key West’s Historic Seaport, Mallory Square’s Sunset Celebration, the Navy Mole where the big ships dock and the civil war era Fort Zachary Taylor. Soak in these sights while enjoying a glass of bubbling champagne or boutique wine, tropical home-made sangria, an icy cold premium beer, full cocktail bar or soft drinks. Chef’s Selection of Hors d’oeuvres, Cocktail Shrimp & Tuna Poke complete the perfect evening.
As the sun begins its fiery descent into the Atlantic, your captain carefully maneuvers the Appledore II into position to maximize your view of the setting sun.
Start your own Key West tradition tonight – a sunset sail Key West style on the historic Appledore II schooner will forever linger in your memories.
