Relaxing, fun, informative. The crew is amazing; polite, courteous and knowledgeable. The food was very good. Getting back at 2:00pm let's you spend your afternoon doing other things that are nearby.

This was a birthday present from our children and what a wonderful present this was! A totally different kind of gift which we so enjoyed! The evening was 100 degrees and being on the water with the cool breeze was perfect. The captain and the crew were so friendly and pleasant to everyone on board. We loved the chowder, and... More

Well we have travelled on the MW almost 10 times by now, and each outing is unique and wonderful. Today, on a sweltering August day with a 100+ heat index, we took the 5 pm Lobster Dinner Cruise. I honestly thought it would be oppressively hot, but the cool ocean breeze welcomed us as we came on board, and once... More

This is the 3rd time I went on this 11am-2:00pm lunch cruise. Such a beautiful ship with the tall sails. They even have you help pull the sails up if you want. Lunch is cooked right on the ship and eaten buffet style on the ship. Beautifully restored ship. My husband went this time and as a 21 years retired... More

I've been on the 3 hour tour twice now and both times it was great. The first time was just a lunchtime cruise. On that cruise it was a beautiful day and enough wind to get us all the way from the Thames, to Fisher's Island and back. The second time was in July of 2016. That was the evening... More

Captain John and First Mate were great and very friendly. Lobster dinner with home made clam chowder was awesome and the best lobster I've had in years. They have a crew that works very hard to keep the boat ship shape.

My husband and I participated in the lobster dinner cruise as an anniversary gift to ourselves. We purchased it through Cloud 9 Living. The crew was SO friendly and the food was delicious. The passengers helped to raise the sails as we approached the Sound. It was definitely a very unique experience. We highly recommend it!

My wife and I took the lunch cruise on a Saturday. We made sure the weather would be good. Took a bottle of wine. The boat left exactly on time. The crew were very friendly, answering all of my land-lubberly type questions without acting put out. Many other participated in raising the sails but my wife and I sat that... More
