Explore the magnificent upper Chesapeake Bay during the best sailing time of year! Team up with renowned musician and folklorist Geoff Kaufman for three days of sailing, music and history as you explore the largest estuary in America onboard the historic, 83-foot Mystic Whaler tall ship. Prior to embarkation, spend a day in Baltimore visiting one of the most impressive collections of military vessels in the world.


• Help sail the ship by hauling on a halyard or simply relax on deck as the vessel glides along under wind power alone.
• In Baltimore, experience a comprehensive, expert-led walkthrough — fore and aft, spar deck to hold — of the USS Constellations, an authentic, mid-19th-century man-of-war.
• Explore the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum with an expert at historic St. Michaels and be treated to a private lecture on the museum’s historic watercraft collection.
