August 5-9, 2013: Longtime passengers asked for a 5 day cruise so they could explore some of our more distant summer destinations. This all-inclusive vacation cruise departing from New London, CT lets you bond with the Captain, crew and fellow shipmates as you explore distant ports together.
Along the way you'll be to help raise sail, steer the ship and learn about the maritime history of the area from the Captain. This week-long getaway adventure takes you back to a time when the winds and tides were the sailors' best friends.
Here's what one passenger had to say:
"I took the 5-day sail, to Cuttyhunk, Martha's Vineyard, Block Island. We had fair seas and rough, a near rescue at sea, serenity and adventure, and great good company. The captain and crew are expert and generous with their knowledge; you can help sail this gorgeous schooner or sit back and relax, as you like.
The food is terrific; I'd love to see their cookbook in print. The passengers were diverse, families and couples and singles from all over, and there was always good company when company was the thing, solitude and peace when I wanted. Given no hotel fees and no need for restaurants, this is the best vacation for the money I've ever encountered. If you want to clear your mind under billowing canvas, wind over water, this is the best." Devacat - Mystic, CT
