  • I was very disappointed in the trip as far as how far out we went. We just made a big circle in the harbor area and that was it. I thought for $60.00 per person it was a terrible price to go no furthe...  read more »

  • A great ship full of great crew and a wonderful way to spend a day with family. The history program is amazing and provides knowledge to those who seek it. Best way to get hands on training on a tall ship.
  • Very disappointed. Scheduled a trip on the Kalmar Nyckel for my Birthday. Picked a date and time that my son could go with me, I paid for the tickets online, and was ready to go, it's something I wanted to do for along time. A couple of days later I received a phone call from them saying there was a scheduling conflict , and ask me to change my time. Because my son had other things scheduled that day we could not change. I m not sure how there could be a conflict when they make up their schedule several months in advance. Maybe someone booked a private trip so we got bumped so they could make more money.
  • A sailing experience like you'll never get anywhere else!!! The Kalmar Nyckel allows passengers to participate, haul on lines, set sail or be supervisors as passengers would like. You also learn a lot of interesting things about the history of the ship.
  • I went to "Colonists Day" and was pleasantly surprised to see such a lively neighborhood and fascinating people! What a find!
