    Mystic Whaler cruises offers tall ship sailing adventures on a classic 110' schooner. Originally built in 1967, the schooner carries 3,000 square feet of sail and meets all Coast Guard standards for safety. Our crew of professionals is always at hand to enhance your experience whether you want to participate in raising sail, learn navigation, discover the history of nearby lighthouses, or take a turn at the helm.

    Help raise sail then help yourself to brunch! Enjoy Long Island Sound by water with lunch on this three-hour family friendly sailing cruise. The menu changes according to seasonal availability. An example menu may include: fresh salads, smoked salmon with cream cheese and capers, quiches, fresh baked rolls, and New York style cheesecake. Beverages include coffee, tea, hot cocoa, lemonade, and water. Feel free to BYOB.

    The buffet when I went was fruits, bread/rolls, spreads, lobster quiche, a sausage/egg dish that I don't remember because I'm a pescatarian, cheese, coffee, tea, juice, etc. A good selection.
