Boston Harbor Day Sails
Get a look at the best side of Boston - from the water - from the deck of a real tall ship!
We'll point the ship into the wind and then hoist the sails - grab the line and help us HAUL AWAY to raise the main sail, fore sail, and jib! You'll get to experience a little of what it is like to sail a traditional schooner with everything operated by hand. An experienced captain and crew will tend the sails while you enjoy beautiful views of Boston Harbor. Depending on the direction of the wind, we might sail toward the outer harbor and you'll get a look at Fort Independence, watch planes taking off or landing right over our masts from Logan International Airport, and view the Boston Harbor Islands. Or we might head over by East Boston, visit the Charlestown Navy Yard - home to the USS Constitution, and glimpse the white steeple of Old North Church in one of Boston's oldest neighborhoods, the North End.
We serve snacks and beverages on board for you to enjoy during your sail.
Boston Harbor Sunset Sails
Enjoy a Boston Sunset Sail aboard a classic schooner.
If Boston is the best from the water, then by far the best time to see it is during a summer sunset! We'll depart Central Wharf and raise the sails, then it's time to just chill out and relax. With a breeze guiding us through the harbor, you'll have a great vantage point to watch the sun go down behind the city and bathe it in incredible colors as the lights of Boston's skyline begin to sparkle in the twilight. Grab a drink from our bar - our special is the sailor's favorite, the Dark 'n' Stormy, made with Goslings dark rum and ginger beer and a twist of lime! Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are also available. A sunset sail is a great way to end a busy day or to start out a fantastic night.
