Short, family-friendly trips are our most popular adventures.

Design your custom outing aboard our impeccably-maintained ships.

Every year, we offer a limited number of special visits.

Classic Sails

Enjoy nature from our decks during one of our popular, public excursions. Dress is casual for all sails. Rubber sole shoes are mandatory; no heels, please. All sails are family-friendly unless otherwise noted.


Specialty Sails

In addition to our regularly-scheduled classic sails, the Appledore tall ships host an array of specialty sails designed around events and activities in the communities we visit. Dress is casual for all sails. Rubber sole shoes are mandatory; no heels, please. All sails are family-friendly unless otherwise noted.


Charters & Tours

Step aboard our impeccably-maintained ships and rest assured that your outing will not only be impressive, but also conducted in the kind of relaxed atmosphere that allows you to build relationships, increase sales, and improve communications.
