Block Island Schooner Rendezvous Cruise:

August 25th-August 28th

This three-day sail visits two ports of call, including a night at Block Island during the Block Island Schooner Rendezvous. The mission of the Block Island Schooner Rendezvous is pure and simple: to bring schooners and people interested in schooners together in a spirit of community and camaraderie to enjoy each others vessels and company at a wonderful location. The Rendezvous is open to all schooners and all members of the American Schooner Association. Mystic Whaler passengers will have the unique experience of enjoying the Rendezvous from aboard our own classic 110’ schooner.

Sailing with the Mystic Whaler is the most memorable way to explore New England. Enjoy unforgettable sunsets along the Connecticut, New York or Rhode Island Coast lines.

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.
