  • This was a trip me and my wife will remember forever, it was so wonderful to have taken this voyage off the coast of Connecticut. The staff and the captain are very professional, the captain is the one you imagine in the movies, he is very knowledgeable looks like he has been sailing for 50 years. The hospitality is second to none, the food the fruits the coffee the tea, the awesome clam chowder was the best I tasted. they make it fresh! The views the ocean the waves the history, it's worth every penny! Just book it you will not regret it
  • Leaving from the city dock in New London, you can see that the captain and the crew of the Mystic Whaler are ready and there to make your time aboard the most enjoyable time it can be. The initial greeting on the dock, to the boarding process, to the lunch, to the hoisting and lowering of the sails, everyone is invested in you (the paying customer) having a good time. The ship, itself, is marvelous to see and beautiful to encounter. The trip out of the dock and down the Thames was smooth and nice. Captain John was informative when we stopped and took in all the sights out in the LI Sound along with everything that was there to see on shore in CT. Captain Pat made sure we got to where we needed to be and helped prepare a hearty lunch with plenty of food for everyone. The only advice I have for future participants is to make sure to bring your own drink, as there is not necessarily something for everyone (to your liking), but no one goes without. The only thing for the experience overall that cold change slightly cold be a bit more sailing and less sitting off shore at the ocean beach park area. It would have been nice to go out into the sound and move around a bit more to get a breeze and see the water going by. However, all in all there is nothing bad about this excursion opportunity,, in fact, it is a high recommend for anyone who is looking for a fun few hours out on the water. They take excellent care of you!
