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!

From a very satisfied customer .....

We loved the experience! The crew were a lovely group of young people who were friendly, informative and obviously really enjoyed what they were doing. Their passion for the schooner and sailing permeated everything that they did. The young lady who was (seemingly) in charge and who shared the history of the schooner was very gifted in communication - we thought she was perfect for the job! The Alliance was very clean, which was nice. From observing the other passengers on board, it was evident that everyone was enjoying themselves. We have already recommended it to a lot of our friends and acquaintances and would consider doing it again. It was the perfect start to a weekend getaway for my husband and I. Our only regret was that we did not know about this experience when our boys were younger, as we know they would have loved the pirate tour! Kudos to a great team and a great job!

Great time, went with 20+ members on family reunion and everyone really had a wonderful time. Very beautiful eve, crew members friendly & allowed us to raise one sail which was fun and let the children help raise another sail. Would recommend it to everyone for an enjoyable evening sight seeing and informative cruise.
