The crew on the Schooner Woodwind is very professional and fun to sail with. Our trip was on the 1:30 PM sail for 2 hours on the Chesapeake Bay. Luckily we had good wind and the weather was perfect for a day on the water. I would definitely sail with this company again when I go back to Annapolis.

We sailed on a Saturday from 11am-1pm. It was a very hot day, and I got the tan lines to prove it! The crew made it fun, and the fiance got to help put the sails up! They also let members steer the boat, and saw some young kids do so. The sail itself was relaxing, but there wasn't much... More

Our company held a conference in the area and chose Schooner for a dinner cruise. It was a lovely sail boat, and the crew was very accommodating. Food and drinks were also very good. Only problem was that once you get out into the open water there really isn't a way to walk around safely without feeling like you might... More

It was our third trip on the boat from the Wedding Crashers movie, again it was thrilling with lots of wind on the way out, we lost the wind about halfway back, it instantly became too hot, the captain would not turn the engine on until we where almost back, that was the only drawback! We can't wait until our... More

Absolutely loved sailing on the Woodwind!! It was so fun and relaxing! We got to do a beer tasting while on board the night I went. The views were amazing. The staff did an excellent job. Taking my family there in a couple weeks too!! Tip: don't sit by the wheel ... Sit on the front right of the boat... More

We went on the Woodwind II on the 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. time slot. It was an unbearably hot day, but the wind was up and the sailing was great. The captain and crew were welcoming and knowledgeable about sailing, the boat,and the Bay. We went under the Bay Bridge which was fun for us on the boat and probably... More

We planned a stay at the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel for our anniversary. I booked a waterfront balcony room, which is literally right above the dock where the Woodwind I and II depart for their 2 hour cruises, four times daily. Captain Forrest and the crew were awesome. It was a scorchingly hot day at the dock, but there were great... More

We are locals trying out the Woodwind on a Wednesday race night. It's a fun way to experience the water in the Spa Creek and Chesapeake Bay. Be out in the Bay as the sailboats race by! Great way to get a taste of the sailing culture for a bit of a fun without buying a boat!.

A great value for two hours in the sun on the bay. We did this on a whim and oops forgot sunscreen, turns out they sell it at the ticket window!. I recommend a hat during high sun hours as there is no shade. We looked at other tours on bigger boats but they all were too touristy and uptight... More

It is two hours and they typically go out 4 times a day on weekends; well organized. Just a tip on seating - while it looks more comfy to sit on the seats each side of the wheel, you don't get the view or the breeze there; better to sit with your back against the life preserver bins atop the...
