As an active sailor with my own boats, I wan't sure if we would enjoy this two hour cruise, but we were at the boat show without a boat of our own and thought we'd try it. We had a fantastic time. The crew is professional and makes this cruise exceptional by engaging with the guests. We noticed that the... More

There were eight of us on the champagne sunset cruise. The vista was simply beautiful as we left the Annapolis Harbor, sailed past the Naval Academy and on through the Chesapeake Bay. The crew was fun and so knowledgeable as we asked questions. Although because of clouds, there wasn't much of a sunset on this particular evening, as the lights... More

What a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Sailing out on the Chesapeake Bay amid the other boats in gorgeous sunshine. Nothing beats the wind in your hair and the smell of fresh saltwater. WE love our sails aboard this gorgeous schooner. Please visit it and make you day a brighter one. The crew is courteous, humorous and helpful.

Went to the Annapolis Seaport, strolled around the Annapolis Towne Center, before boarding the 74’ Schooner Woodwind for a sunset sail cruise/overnight stay. After our sunset sail, Captain Ken called for a water taxi to take us to Carrol’s Creek Café for dinner and we enjoyed a short distance walk along 6th street bridge. We sat on the deck under... More

Boat and crew are great but the view is the main attraction and was spectacular. Couldn't have been better!

We had a lot of fun on our sunset cruise on the Woodwind 2. The crew were so professional and fun, and worked hard to make sure we were having a good time. They tried to get everyone involved, and even allowed a few volunteers to help with the sails. Unfortunately, a storm started coming in while we were out... More

Decided at last minute to take the sunset cruise aboard the Woodwind, what a great deicision. We sent sail and once outside the harbor went to sails which the guest helped hoist. We were sailing at 9.5 knots which was incredible. Captain Ken and his crew were great, and the captain was wonderful with letting the little kids steer and... More

Took our office staff on a retreat to Annapolis and decided to book a sail. Great choice! We had wonderful weather and a gentile breeze at least until we set sail. Once in the harbor we had a strong breeze and the ship was under full sail. We wife was uncomfortable but I loved it. We were holding on for... More

This is a 2 hour sail out of Annapolis harbor. The boat is a beautiful modern "stay sail" schooner of classic design. The crew was great, and the captain was very patient with letting the little kids steer and answering all my questions. They serve free soft drinks and snacks and sell craft beer and wine on board. No handicap... More

My family (husband, 10 yr old daughter, and myself) enjoyed a lovely evening on the Woodwind! We went on a Wednesday night so we got to enjoy the weekly Annapolis sail boat races. It was perfect weather and we couldn't have asked for a better crew!! Everyone was very friendly and made it a very memorable experience. I look forward... More
