Greg and Laura Lohse have been sailing tall ships together since 1988. They have sailed extensively throughout the Atlantic, Caribbean, Bahamas, Great Lakes and the North and South Pacific Oceans. For most of that time, their specialty has been working aboard tall ships and teaching seamanship and sailing skills to students of all ages and backgrounds.

The Lohses' chief desire on every cruise is to help each guest feel welcome, relaxed and free to enjoy their cruise by doing as much or as little on board as they wish. Their vast experience in teaching tall ship seamanship and navigation enables them to provide a rich learning adventure to all guests who wish to participate in the operation of their craft.

Their two schooners include the gaff-rigged 105' schooner the Alliance, and the 65' gaff topsail schooner the Serenity. Both boats give you the opportunity to explore the Chesapeake Bay tidewaters!

For those who love history, yearn for romance, or have dreamed of experiencing a true sailing adventure, your ship has just come in!

We liked our 2-hour sailing cruise a lot, but because of the wind direction (in from the Chesapeake Bay), we spent 75 minutes tacking into the wind and did not get very far. Then it was time to turn around and head back to the dock. I guess we thought we would go farther. But the crew were friendly and well-informed. They were fun to talk to. We got to help hoist the sails, but otherwise we were advised to stay out of the way as the crew worked. I had a little conversation with the captain, and that was fun, too.

Last August (2015), I took my grandson on the pirate cruise, it was so much fun. The pirate captain was on our cruise on 4/20/16. He spent time to speak with me and my husband. The sky was clear, and the wind picked up for our sail back to the dock. It was very enjoyable. We will bring our grandson's back for the pirate cruise this summer.
