A fun way to experience a 2 hour sail on the bay aboard a very nice sailing vessel. Guests can participate in the operation of the vessel as much as they like or just sit back and enjoy the experience.

Took the Schooner sunset sail that sailed at 6:30. The crew were personable and professional. The sail was beautiful, especially the return watching the sunset. We even had a gentlemen ask his girlfriend to marry him on our sail. Lots of fun.

A sunset sail on the Chesapeake out of Annapolis on a warm summer evening, done up right with drinks, snacks, pleasant company, beautiful boats, and a really engaging crew. We've taken an elderly relative on two of these cruises, and year over year the quality of the crew, boat, and experience have been quite satisfying. It's a photographer's paradise, as... More

We took our Daughter and her Husband as a gift on the Woodwind as they celebrated their 1st Wedding Anniversary and had a wonderful experience. The trip is Relaxing and a Blast,the Crew is Outstanding. They even get the people taking the cruise to help them with hoisting the sails, which I did. They serve beer and wine and provide... More

Both boats are in excellent condition and have amazing staff. Pat had us all entertained and Ken did a great job too. They sell a rum punch as well as beer and soft drinks on the boat. We did the Wednesday night race and wish we had picked a different time to go. The boat was packed and you couldn't... More

I recently took a Wednesday evening sail on the Woodwind II. The Wednesday evening sail is a race between the Woodwind II and its sister ship, the Woodwind. I was looking forward to a lovely night on the Chesapeake and thought that the race was an added, but not very serious, extra. Not so. The race was a serious--and exciting--business.... More

Sometimes it's just perfect and everything clicks like a fine Swiss watch. That describes our cruise aboard the Schooner Woodwind on Wednesday, August 19. My wife and I sailed from 11 am to 1 pm all around Annapolis Harbor with Captain Ken and his crew, Tom and Pat. These three were excellent...knowledgeable, thoroughly competent, funny, and engaging. Even Pat, a... More

This was incredible, so much fun. Of course we had perfect weather and perfect winds. We sailed with all four sails, just like the picture and went up to and under the Bay Bridge. It was the first time my 9 year old granddaughter had ever sailed. The Captain and crew could not have been nicer or more helpful. They... More

I would recommend this cruise to anyone. It was very nice especially for the price. We went on a Thursday Night and the theme was acoustic, it was great music which added to the experience. There wasn't much wind so we did a lot of cruising and couldn't actually sail until towards the end. The only thing that would make... More
