Five Day Full Moon Cruise on the Southern New England Coastline:

August 11-16, 2019

This extended cruise will provide a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, with beautiful views of the full moon while anchored at night (weather permitting). The five-day sail will include 4 ports of call. We love to sail east as far as we can during the first day. We may go as far as the Elizabeth Islands off Massachusetts, Martha's Vineyard and Cuttyhunk. Other ports of call may be Newport, Bristol, and Block Island, RI.

Grab your favorite bottle of wine or try a local beer at port. Sip and relax while you enjoy the sunset over the water.

The Mystic Whaler Experience

The Mystic Whaler offers sailing vacations with a variety of cabin types. Though the ship was inspired by 19th century coastal schooners, the Mystic Whaler was built for the passenger trade and includes private cabins, hot showers and a cozy main salon.

The captains and crew take care of all of the details freeing you to lounge in the sun, read a book, help raise sail, steer the ship, climb aloft or make new friends with your shipmates and crew - it's up to you. Cruises are all-inclusive including home-cooked meals and beverages (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water and lemonade). Please feel free to bring your own adult beverages or soda as these are not provided.
