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

My husband and I tried the sunset lobster dinner cruise last Saturday night with a couple of our friends. This was our first dinner cruise and it was a beautiful night and you couldn't ask for better weather. They actually let us join in and hoist the sail as part of the crew- which made it fun! We all got... More

First off Tripadvisor only gives the option of 5 circles or else I would have put up more....All I can say is I went off the dozens of great reviews this organization has received in order to make my decision and I'm so glad I did. The Captain and Crew were amazing, so helpful and friendly, it felt more like... More

He and his crew exude competence which makes sailing fun and comfortable for experienced and inexperienced passengers. This years crew was for... More

The crew are well trained, and everything went smoothly. First course was RI chowder. Lots of clams and a great broth. Next came steamed lobster with drawn butter, coleslaw and rolls. Dessert was cheesecake... More

We celebrated a part of a 35th wedding anniversary trip with a day trip sail. The food was great, the crew warm , friendly, and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful time. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to bring our whole family! The captain was very interesting and clearly knew maritime history as well... More
