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!
Lovely sunset cruise - until the storm came in

We had a lot of fun on our sunset cruise on the Woodwind 2. The crew were so professional and fun, and worked hard to make sure we were having a good time. They tried to get everyone involved, and even allowed a few volunteers to help with the sails. Unfortunately, a storm started coming in while we were out in the bay, so we had to cut our cruise short by almost an hour. But that was ok, it wasn't their fault and we still had a good time.
Beautiful Schooner and a great night

Decided at last minute to take the sunset cruise aboard the Woodwind, what a great deicision. We sent sail and once outside the harbor went to sails which the guest helped hoist. We were sailing at 9.5 knots which was incredible. Captain Ken and his crew were great, and the captain was wonderful with letting the little kids steer and answering all the questions. My nephew Patrick was at the helm and now has a new appreciation of sailing. Thank you all for making our visit to Annapolis so memorable!
Felt like we would tip over

Took our office staff on a retreat to Annapolis and decided to book a sail. Great choice! We had wonderful weather and a gentile breeze at least until we set sail. Once in the harbor we had a strong breeze and the ship was under full sail. We wife was uncomfortable but I loved it. We were holding on for dear life. Sure beats having the engine running.
