We had a terrific experience on the Woodwind II. The captain and crew were energetic, friendly, and hospitable. The weather was perfect - breezy and warm. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. What a great way to see the Chesapeake Bay!

This was a magnificent experience. As with one of your earlier reviews there were only a few passengers which probably contributed to the enjoyment. All sails were set and with a reasonable breeze out in the bay it was exilarating, cannot fault it.
