We decided to take the 21/2 hour sail which cost about $100 for 2 adult tickets. It was an amazing day and the crew was very nice and accommodating. The views were beautiful and the only recommendation I have would be to share more historical information another the area. That would have made it a 5 star sail. The price... More

We really enjoyed the sail. The crew was both nice and knowledgeable and they didn't mind answering questions. It was a smooth sail and a nice way to hear about some local history and enjoy the great weather. Would definitely recommend this.

We took the sunset cruise on Aug 4 and enjoyed it immensely. The crew was great and it was a perfect evening to be on the water. Would definitely do it again!!!

We were in the area visiting relatives and had been told by many that we should visit Mystic. I booked the cruise thinking we could learn a lot of history while enjoying the beautiful scenery. The office staff, captain and crew were great. Our crew gave us quite a bit of history of the harbor and all the ships and... More

We took the afternoon cruise on a lovely summer day. The crew was very polite and professional. You could bring your own refreshments but they also had some available to take. Guests could help raise the sails. Once out on the open water when they raised the sails and cut the engines it was smooth, quiet, relaxing - just a... More

A very pleasant and relaxing way to spend a beautiful afternoon. A little pricey, but worth it to do once. Crew gave a nice spiel (although I would have welcomed even more historical background). I learned the difference between a schooner and a ketch! My nephews got to help hoist the sails, which made their day. They have plenty of... More
