Schooner Woodwind, Annapolis Maryland Customer Testimonials Customer Reviews

“Cadette Girl Scout Troop 5891 and 5859 of Ashburn, VA, had a fabulous time sailing aboard the Woodwind II! Not only did the girls learn the basics of sailing, our troop leader was able to check off an item off her bucket list!”

Welcome Aboard

A true and interactive sailing experience in Annapolis, Maryland on two, fast and fun 74-foot wooden schooners, Woodwind and Woodwind II.

All Scouts will learn the following:

  • Nautical Terms
  • Hoist the Sails
  • Proper Lookout
  • Steer the Schooner
  • Boating Safety

We have developed a 2-hour sailing cruise where we train the girls on different aspects of sailing, as we cruise past the United States Naval Academy and then out onto the Chesapeake Bay.

Girl Scout Programs:


BROWNIES will take a “journey” learning about the “Wonders of Water” while sailing the Chesapeake Bay.  More Info on “Wonders of Water”


Two programs to choose from, click here for the description of both programs.  Including a GEOCACHING TRAIL to obtain a “Geocacher Badge”.


TEENS will learn about “Smooth Sailing- your relationship with water”, and AMBASSADORS will be able to complete Step One of the “Water Legacy Naturalist Badge.”

We educate girl scouts about the "Wonders of Water" and sailing using an interactive approach while cruising the Chesapeake Bay. Prices:

Prices start at $35.00 per child (under 12) & come with a soft drink or bottled water, snack and a Schooner Woodwind Participation Patch!

According to the Girl Scout USA Safety Checkpoints, they want all girl scouts, adults, and other children aboard a “girl scout” cruise to be outfitted in life jackets. We have purchased Type III lifejackets which are more comfortable for non-emergency use.

Call 410-263-1981 to arrange a cruise for your Scout Group.
