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 loft 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.
