We sailed out of Baltimore on Royal Caribbean with four adults and two kids who love to snorkel. My FIL was able to work out a timeframe with Captain Patty that would guarantee we would be able to make the trip during the time our ship was docked. We took a taxi, met up with Patty on the dinghy (our... More

My husband and I sailed with Captain Patty. Neither of us had ever been on a sail boat, and she made us feel right at home. Even when my husband got a little sea sick, she knew just what to do! We stopped at 2 places to snorkel and we had an awesome lunch prepared on board. The rum punch... More

Could not have been better. If you want to have a great day of sailing and lots of fun, book a day on Free Bird with Captain Patty. She asked what we wanted to do and went out of her way to make sure we had fun. Sailed over to St. John from Red Hook, went for a swim &... More

My husband and I really wanted to get on the water. We sailed with Patty and her crew, Dick. Very accommodating! She suggested a wonderful place to snorkel at Christmas Cove. We were so pleased with her suggestion, we stayed all afternoon and frolicked. Patty & Dick made a great Mediterranean lunch. We enjoyed music and getting to know both... More

The Mystic trip was perfect! Highlight of our vacation. We celebrated my inlaw's 50th anniversary yesterday on the Mystic and all 11 of us (5 kids ages 8-15) were thrilled with our day. Out of 10 stars each family member said it was a 10 or higher! The ship is beautiful. It's super comfortable with its air conditioned interior option,... More

The appointments on the boat are very nice, 12 comfy staterooms, nice galley & dining cabin...great vessel! Capt. Tom and his crew did a great job sailing and involving those who were so inclined...

Truly one of the best days I have ever had in the USVI was the Sunday afternoon I got to spend aboard the Mystic. From the tender out to the boat, to the crew greeting us on board, helping to raise the sails, exploring the 170 feet the ship has to offer, the food, the beauty of the ship, to... More

Thank you to the team at Morningstar Sailing aboard the Tall Ship Mystic! My wife and many friends had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy an afternoon sail aboard this impressive 171' square-rigged three-masted schooner. The crew presented themselves as courteous, professional, well dressed knowledgeable and genuinely friendly. Passengers were invited to help hoist the large sails by tailing the halyards... More

Even though we had a great time with the crew and the food, the boat was small and old. It was certainly a big time bait-n-switch by Captain Mike!!!! Not good

Hey everyone, We want to take a moment and let everyone know that this review was posted by someone who we could not accommodate because our boats were unavailable. The reviewer contacted us the day before they were to leave St.Thomas and asked in desperation that we help them find any boat that we could. We told them that we... More
