What You Can Expect

Key West Schooner Champagne Sunset Sail

Champagne Sunset Cruise

The idea of a relaxing and enjoyable sunset sail is what vacations are made of, and Key West’s sunsets are well known for providing some of the best views in the world. That’s why huge crowds gather in Mallory Square to see them each evening. Escape from all the craziness and experience the breathtaking view from the water on this 2-hour Key West sunset cruise.

Step aboard the Appledore, a traditional two-masted schooner. Help hoist the sails and take a turn at the wheel. Feel the warm, tropical sea air and watch all the activity along the coastline's landmarks: the bustling Key West seaport, Mallory Square’s comings and goings, plus Navy Mole, Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park and more.

Then there’s the sunset sky, as if from an artist’s brush with its brilliant streaks of blue mixed with red, yellow and orange colors as dusk arrives and the beaming sun begins to fade and settle into the water. This tall ship will be perfectly positioned at the southernmost point in the United States, so bring a camera to capture this rare, incredible view.

Enjoy fresh fruit and cheese with champagne, wine, homemade sangria, ice-cold beer and soft drinks on this delightful twilight trip.

Beautiful and fun cruise on the water - the drinks were flowing freely and we had a beautiful night - the sunset was gorgeous. Captain Kate and her crew - I think Ben and Steve were fun, knowledgeable and professional. Great experience.

We loved this trip! We sailed on the Appledore II an hour before sunset. The schooner set sail on time, and the captain and crew were delightful. A variety of drinks were available, as were trays of fruit, cheeses, and crackers. The guests were allowed to take turns at the wheel! Although the sunset didn't cooperate on this trip, we still had a delightful time and would highly recommend this tour.

I absolutely loved the sunset cruise. It was very relaxing on a boat. The sunset was amazingly beautiful. The staff was very inviting and boy did they keep the drinks coming. I enjoyed it so much that every time I'm in Key West I'm taking a sunset cruise.

Awesome experience. Very hospitable captain and his knowledgable crew, coupled with the refreshments served on board and the thrill of the gentle breeze pushing the schooner along, made this trip well worth the time. Will definitely recommend this to friends.
