    Engagement pictures on schooner

    Rod and his team were amazing! We rented the schooner for the afternoon sailed around to take engagement photos as well as kayaking and snorkeling. We were even able to put our photographer in a kayak to take pictures! Lunch and crew were spectacular. Highly recommend!

    Beautiful evening on sunset sail

    Our group had a wonderful time with the Appledore crew. We did this as a group event after our wedding, enjoying the sunset together. It was a very memorable time for everyone! Especially getting to help set the sails. Thank you Appledore crew! :)
