I was in Baltimore shortly after the first wave of the pandemic was ending. I was curious about what was available for activities. Turns out this place was just opening back up and we happy to do a tour with me.
Captain Amanda and Nick were wonderful. Since this was their first go round since COVID, there were some safety protocols to go over, then it was off to sailing.
I opted for the history tour since I can't really think of a better way to explore the history of Baltimore than sailing. Of course, it's weather dependent, but for our day, it was perfect.
They were both really knowlegable on the history and kept it very entertaining and well paced. Since it was me and a friend, it was a very catered, personal experience.
I would very highly suggest a trip with these guys. Personally, I'm looking forward to the evening wine and cheer sail next time.

We had an amazing morning with Captain Tom. I thought it would be the perfect way to spend a lovely morning on the water with out of town family, but ended up loving it for myself! I’ve lived in Baltimore 23 years and still learned something new from the captain’s informative historical narrative. Captain Tom was professional, engaging, and an easygoing expert of his craft. I highly, highly recommend this tour for families.

We were a group of two couples and we all had a wonderful experience. The crew was knowledgeable, professional and very attentive. They had cold drinks, we all wore masks and they have a head if you need it. It was about 90 degrees and they even had a little canvas up to give us shade. Nick gave us a lot of information about the Inner Harbor and Baltimore and told us about the ship as well. This was well worth it.

We enjoyed the cruise and had a very good experience with the crew. We learned a lot about places along the harbor and its history. A couple of minor suggestions. Stop playing music while the captain is speaking. Sometimes it made it hard to hear even though the music was not very loud. Drinks were provided but kind of hot. There was a bag of ice in the cooler but drinks were not cooled down. One of the best things was the small group and individual attention provided. Highly recommend!

I can't think of a better way to pass 90 minutes of your time!!! Captain Tom kept us entertained with fascinating stories about Baltimore's history - most of which were based on the places we were sailing past. "First Mate" Lindsay was friendly and professional, and lots of fun to be around. We just a great time all around. So, if you enjoy friendly folks, storytelling and being out on the water - this is the tour for you!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our sail around Baltimore Harbor. Captain Tom shared with us the nautical history of the Bay as we sailed. He also shared some current news about various businesses around the Harbor. The weather was perfect for sailing. I definitely recommend Captain Tom!

Had a great time sailing on this trip with two of my friends. Tom and his crew were fantastic and very accommodating. They pointed out a lot of sights that you can see around the harbor. Gave a lot of history about the City of Baltimore and the different neighborhoods. It was a perfect day!

We had a fabulous time on the sailboat, with a perfect calm weather morning! I scheduled the sailing tour to celebrate my birthday in Baltimore. Captain Tom & Lindsey were very friendly. We kept a steady pace, and heard interesting history about the places we sailed by! It was the perfect length trip, and just so relaxing.

Great start off to our day trip of the Inner Harbor. We loved the interesting history stories and facts as we toured the bay. The captain was very friendly and a great host. We took his advice and went to Fells Point to the oldest bar after our Summer Wind adventure and loved it!! Fells Point is an amazing area with some great restaurants, bars, and shops.
