Fantastic Boat and Crew, Great Experience
Oct 11, 2014 by: Sethpool from Roanoke, Virginia
As an active sailor with my own boats, I wan't sure if we would enjoy this two hour cruise, but we were at the boat show without a boat of our own and thought we'd try it. We had a fantastic time. The crew is professional and makes this cruise exceptional by engaging with the guests. We noticed that the crew was socially adaptable, being able to easily interact with the diverse makeup of the guests on our cruise. To Schooner Windward if you read this: your crew member, Andy, is exceptional. He is intelligent, knowledgeable, well-spoken, and apparently likes you, your boats, and his work very much. He made an outstanding impression on us.

There were eight of us on the champagne sunset cruise. The vista was simply beautiful as we left the Annapolis Harbor, sailed past the Naval Academy and on through the Chesapeake Bay. The crew was fun and so knowledgeable as we asked questions. Although because of clouds, there wasn't much of a sunset on this particular evening, as the lights came on around the shoreline, the vista just glistened. The cruise was very relaxing and enjoyable...a wonderful way to spend time on a warm, late summer evening.
Relaxing Sail on a Gorgeous Day

What a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Sailing out on the Chesapeake Bay amid the other boats in gorgeous sunshine. Nothing beats the wind in your hair and the smell of fresh saltwater. WE love our sails aboard this gorgeous schooner. Please visit it and make you day a brighter one. The crew is courteous, humorous and helpful.
Come for some fun and adventure.

Went to the Annapolis Seaport, strolled around the Annapolis Towne Center, before boarding the 74’ Schooner Woodwind for a sunset sail cruise/overnight stay. After our sunset sail, Captain Ken called for a water taxi to take us to Carrol’s Creek Café for dinner and we enjoyed a short distance walk along 6th street bridge. We sat on the deck under the stars and watched boats travel along Ego Alley. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, granola and yogurt which I drizzled fresh maple syrup on top. Yummy and there were huge chunks of crab in the quiche, homemade bread, orange juice, coffee, conversation and the staff which catered to my dietary needs. I had a vegetable quiche. We decided to take a tour aboard the Spanish tall ship El Galeon Andalucia, which was moored off the Dock Street Pier and Captain Ken gave us directions to the B&A trail for a 13+ mile bike ride…great adventure & fun time. Very accommodating dock check-in, friendly and knowledgeable staff & crew members. They asked for help during the sunset sail to put the sails up and steer the ship. Although the wind lay down during our 2 hour sunset sail Captain Ken motored around the Annapolis bay area pointing out several interests such as the Naval Academy, Annapolis Maritime Museum and the Back Creek area which we traveled. It was marvelous to stay overnight onboard! Clean, air conditioned, tight quarters which is expected but if you’re looking for something different the Schooner Woodwood is a must see and do…
Fabulous sunset cruise

Boat and crew are great but the view is the main attraction and was spectacular. Couldn't have been better!
