What a great evening cruise we had! The children loved helping raise the sails & sitting next to the Captain listening to sea stories. The crew was friendly but professional. They served us the best lobster we have had all summer. What a night, well worth the money!

So, my wonderful girlfriend planned a weekend getaway for us for my birthday in June. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate and Mystic Whaler Cruises scrubbed the trip (to their credit, they were very apologetic and cooperative with the rebooking), but we rescheduled for a month later, that was July 18, 2015. We arrived and were greeted by a very friendly... More

I purchased tickets for our family as an anniversary gift for my husband. We had a wonderful evening sailing aboard the Mystic Whaler! The staff was kind and very helpful; the food was great - clam chowder, lobster, cole slaw and dessert; the sailing adventure was top notch! I highly recommend any of the available tours they offer!

My wife and I were given this trip by our children for Father's day. It was better than the normal "Tie". Cookie and I enjoyed your hospitality and the food was terrific. Couldn't think of a nicer way to spend 3 hours.

From the excellent customer service before arriving to a wonderful evening of sailing and lobster, this was a terrific event that I highly recommend. Owner/manager David provided excellent directions, so that we could avoid traffic caused by an event in town that evening. Capt. John and crew were very welcoming and fun to be with. The atmosphere was friendly and... More

We tried the afternoon cruse. Will absolutely be doing this again. Everything was perfect, the lunch we were served was fresh and tasty, Pat even carved a watermelon and filled it with a fresh fruit salad. The peace and quiet after the sails are pulled up is so relaxing and calming. Everyone in the crew was kind and went out... More

The co-captains John and Pat (husband and wife) the cook, Eric, and the crew, Jesse, Tony, Carolyn, and Lauren made this a memorable trip. The food, sights, and wind in our sails says it all. Everyone aboard left with a smile on their face and more serenity than they boarded with a few days earlier.

... the trip on high is aboard the Mystic Whaler. We love the water but the thought of being on the latest floating metropolis with thousands of vacationers holds little attraction for us. If you want a taste of 19th century sailing with flush toilets and an on board chef there is no other way to fly. The crew is... More

What a perfect 3 days, sailing on the Chesapeake Bay - beautiful ship, great crew, delicious food, wonderful music, great weather which I'm sure Captain John and Pat ordered and enjoyable company. What more could you ask for? Marshmallows to roast over the hot coals in the grill. And they appeared! It was very difficult to end this special experience.... More
