We decided that our first trip aboard the Mystic Whaler was far too short so this time we opted for the five day sail and again, did not want to leave the ship when we got back. From my journal during the trip: July 29, 2014 "Occasionally we are fortunate enough to bump up against some greatness in our lives,... More

There really is nothing negative to say. Yes as other reviewers warn - if you aren't good at basic living and need all the luxuries of modern travel then it might not... More

We have been on the Mystic Whaler more than once and it is always a wonderful sailing adventure. The crew are always helpful and fun to be around. There were only 16 passengers when we went on our most recent trip, so the boat never seemed crowded. The cook was excellent and we had breakfast, lunch and dinner on the... More

My husband and I have been on Mystic Whaler for a number of Lobster Cruises which were always a terrific treat, so we decided to go to the next level and do a 3 day Full Moon cruise (Block Island). I was little apprehensive about spending 3 days/nights onboard. Well we both agree that this was one of the best... More
