Bring jacket and unless very hot wear long pants as it gets cold on water.

Love the Schooner! I've been on it about 5x over the years. Always a great experience! A fantastic events for friends, family, kids and couples. The size of the boat makes it a really smooth ride. The scenery and other people make it so memorable.

It's was a beautiful night for a sunset cruise. We brought wine, crackers and cheese. Bring a sweater or sweatshirt. The staff was great. Don't think it would be worth the full price but with the Groupon it was reasonable.

Took us a year to use the groupon bc the company canceled our scheduled boat ride three separate times for all different reasons - staffing, boat repairs, weather. Understandable but not great customer service. The actual boat ride was enjoyable.

My cruise is upcoming so I have nothing to share yet other than the customer service people were nice to ask questions of.

No issues with the boat, and the crew was very friendly and accommodating. It was, simply put, a boring ride straight out past Lighthouse Point and back to Long Wharf. Maybe it was not windy enough but they ran the motor most of the time and that was very slow going, the when we were actually sailing (just using two of the many sails), I think I could have swam faster. Nothing memorable.

From Our Editors

Schooner Inc began in 1975 as a means to highlight the plight of the Long Island Sound and to help amplify the positive difference that the Clean Water Act was starting to make in US waters. Today, the company connects more than 8,000 people each year to the beauty and history of New Haven Harbor via public sails, summer camps, and educational programs.

For the last 23 years, the Quinnipiack—central Connecticut's only traditionally rigged tall ship—has hosted hands-on marine experiences for kids and adults. The New Haven mayor has officially decreed the schooner to be the city's flagship, as well as the ship Most Likely to Wear Couture Sails. The spacious boat was named to honor the Native Americans who inhabited the region and is helmed by an experienced and friendly crew.
