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

We had some friends in, so we decided to take the Woodwind. It was a lot of fun, altought the 2 hour sail is over all too quickly. The crew was great, very friendly and very professional. Their dock staff could use some customer service training. They were very brusk and almost hostile, espiciallyy making sure that everyone lined up... More

First of all, I was made to feel extremely welcome and quite safe. Jennifer, owner and captain, created a fantastic evening on the water. It was Wednesday night, which is race night on the Chesapeake. All the boats were out, the water was beautiful and the sky was striking! I highly recommend this excursion for ANYONE. It is a great...

It was Wed. and "race night" so our boat raced against another Schooner Woodwind and we watched all the other boat races ! The captain Ken... More

2 Large multi masted schooners glide through the waters around Annapolis and leave from the dock at the Marriott- the Woodwind and the Woodwind II are historical and comfortable ways to see much of Annapolis and the surrounding area, including the Naval Academy. The captain and crew are very nice and the Captain is very informative and interesting without droning... More

My friend and I caught the Thursday evening sunset cruise with local music! It was fantastic!! The weather was beautiful, could have used a little more wind but no one can control mother nature. The staff was fun and you could tell they loved their jobs. Patrons got to help hoist the sails and just enjoy the company! The cruise... More

Such an awesome experience!!! The crew was very friendly. I was given the opportunity to sail the Schooner for about 10 minutes. Wow!!! I loved every minute of it. Definitely can't wait to do it again!! We went on a two hour Sunset cruise in very windy conditions. The weather was too poor to see an actual sunset but it... More

The girls in my troop learned a lot about sailing - and the crew made it all look so easy! They even extended the time a little so everyone who wanted to could steer the boat. For scouts there is a geocaching trail the group can do after. Make sure to ask about it! It's a historical puzzle and the... More
