Sails are 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours in length. Bring the family for an interactive and exciting experience for all ages!

Everyone is invited to help the crew raise the 3,500 sq ft. canvas sail and engage in an education presentation. You will hear about the A.J. Meerwald’s historic role in the oyster industry and connect with the maritime heritage and rich natural resources that surround you.

Our special “Themed” sails are always a fun time. Dress up like a Pirate for our Pirate Sails, hear about local history from local organizations, or watch the sunset while listening to a live band. These sails are scheduled throughout the sailing season from various ports.


All passengers are welcome to bring food and beverages on board for your enjoyment during the sail. Beer and wine are welcome, please no hard liquor.

Click “Sail” to see our sail schedule for ports and “purchase tickets” for pricing.
