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

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

We are so glad to hear that you had a great time aboard the Woodwind. We apologize for any confusion that we have two sailing vessels, Woodwind and Woodwind II. We try to do our best to make that as clear as possible on our website as it is no secret of ours! If booking in the future and you... 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

Our family - wanted a fun family outing within reasonable drive of DC - one adult, one senior and two twenty something siblings. 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.
