Fun Fact

Her captain, Capt. John Eginton, recently was awarded Tall Ship America’s Sail Trainer of the Year at our joint Annual Conference in Quebec City this past weekend! If you get the chance, congratulate him on this great honor.

The backstory

Built in 1967 and rebuilt in 1993, the Mystic Whaler hosts a variety of cruises, ranging from 3 hours to 5 days out of the her homeport in New London, CT over the summer. The Mystic Whaler offers great sailing opportunities for both novice and experienced passengers. In the fall, she travels to Maryland for three weeks of 3-day overnight sails and to participate in the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race. This past season, she placed 3rd in her AA class in the competition. Some of the overnight cruises have special interest extras such as lighthouse tours, sea music and full moon cruises.
