We had a very enjoyable evening. The weather started to turn very rapidly and Captain John was constantly watching. We made it back to port in time to see two beautiful, double rainbows. The food was fantastic. Take a bottle of wine and enjoy!

A very relaxing day in the mouth of the Thames River. As we boarded the boat and cruised around, the young crew was very pleasant and helpful. They raised the sails, and we slowly tacked back and forth around the lighthouse. The captain told some interesting stories about the sites. And they served a delicious freshly barbecued chicken meal on... More

My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary on the Mystic Whaler Cruise. It was simply awesome. Well worth the cost. The dinner was great and the view was beautiful. 5 stars.

My husband and I recently visited Rhode Island/Connecticut. When planning our trip I found this lobster dinner cruise. It was the most wonderful experience! A perfect mix of fun, beautiful sites, delicious lobster and clam chowder and interesting information about our surroundings! We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our time on this beautiful very spacious sailboat. The captain and his... More

Thank you so much for sailing with us. We're sorry that you were disappointed about not seeing whales. Our TripAdvisor listing had us mistakenly categorized under whale watching tours. We've corrected that and are waiting for TripAdvisor to approve the correction. We're so glad that you did enjoy your lunch sail and congratulations on your wedding! More

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
