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

The tour itself was enjoyable offering relaxing views of the bay and environs. Onboard service was excellent! Be careful especially mindful when you book tickets, however. There are actually two boats, not one as the website leads a person to believe, so some groups were literally split between vessels. The downright hostile customer service agent seemed gleeful at passenger difficulties... More

Beautiful setting, beautiful boat! What more could you want - a very relaxed and enjoyable cruise around, and the crew worked hard to be helpful without being intrusive. Clearly a very professional setup....and therein lies the rub as the saying goes......just a tad to clinical for my liking, but then I'm a fussy old codger. Seriously, if you enjoy getting... More

The reviews don't lie - this is one of the coolest things to do in Annapolis. The crew are super fun and entertaining, but aren't intrusive and let you kind of enjoy your own company. They run a very professional operation and everything felt very safe. Being out on the water in a sailboat on a sunny summer evening with... More

We learned of the schooner Woodwind quite some time ago and learned that there is live acoustic music on Thursday evening 2 hour sunset cruises in summer. We reserved easily on line the morning of the event... More

We head to Annapolis frequently since we only live about a half an hour away. This was one of the best boat tours I have ever done. Great staff, fun, informative and a beautiful boat. Snacks and drinks included really great local brew choices. We will continue to visit the Woodwind.

I sailed on the Woodwind last night as they raced in the Wednesday Sailboat Races sponsored by the Annapolis Yacht Club. Several classes of sailboats race each week with the Woodwind and Woodwind II being the largest. We were all invited to help with the sailing part if interested. A free beer or soda and snack were part of the... More

My husband had the opportunity to steer the ship for over a half an hour. Food and drinks were great and this was a 2 1/2 hr. cruise in... More

The crew had some passengers assist with the sails. They gve a bit of info about the workings of the ship, and of the area. Veryprofessional. Mike was very articulate and personable. They served...
