Where are we going today?
Have you ever been sailing? Pretty amazing isn't it? Now imagine yourself on a Tall Ship - those amazing boats with all the sails and intricate designs. Mystic Whaler Cruises is a company that is looking forward to getting the entire family out on the water for the day!
Sailing is such a great family experience. It not only lets you explore the ocean, but lets you see the land from a whole new perspective.
If you are just looking for a quick adventure to get a taste of the open water, Mystic Whaler Cruises offer a 3 hour luncheon day sail. This stunning 110' tall ship can even raise a rail to a fun sea chanty as you experience the thrill of actually having the ship's wheel under your hands! Great for kids over 5 years of age, it's a great introduction to the sailing world.
Other shorter sailing adventures include the Sunday Brunch Sail, as well as the 5 hour Memorial Day Cruise, where you can enjoy a tasty luncheon served under the sails.
If you want something a bit MORE special for the family, perhaps a celebration, then try the Lobster Dinner Cruise! This will take you around scenic waters, amazing lighthouses and that brilliant Fishers island coastline!
Of course, if you wanted to explore the journey for just a little longer, Mystic Whaler Cruises offer 2 to 5 day cruises too. For those very keen sailors!
What's great about the cruises is that the team are very willing for kids to have a go, so if they want to raise a sail or learn some navigation - they can! You never know, there might be a sailor in them yet!

What people are saying?

My experience aboard the Mystic Whaler was nothing short of magical. The crew was outstanding in both their professionalism and their warm, friendly manner. We (Global Youth Leadership Institute) spent three days sailing, and learned much about the vessel and sailing lore, and were allowed to assist in operating the schooner. Many thanks for memories that have, and will continue to, inspire. You are the BEST!
