Boston Tall Ship Overnights
Do you consider yourself an adventurous traveler looking to try something a little different? The Liberty Fleet offers the unique experience of staying overnight on board our tall ships during the summer in Boston Harbor! You'll be right in the heart of downtown Boston, steps from Quincy Market and the historic North End. Our shipboard cabins are warmly furnished with a rustic aesthetic that will be an experience akin to what we like to call "camping on the water." Come aboard and experience what it might have been like to be a sailor on a tall ship visiting Boston.

Tall Ship Accommodations
Our ships were built to provide comfort to overnight passengers in cozy, rustic-style cabins. They are comfortably furnished with soft mattresses and pillows and all linens. Much like a hostel, most cabins share a common bathroom and shower (called a "head" on a boat!). These heads are a combined toilet and shower room and operate similarly to facilities on land. Solo travelers are likely to be paired with another solo traveler of the same gender unless a private single room is booked.
We recommend that you pack lightly when possible in a soft-sided duffel as storage is limited in your cabin! If you are visiting Boston as part of a longer trip, you will probably find it helpful to pack the items you will need during your stay in a smaller, separate bag.
- All cabins come furnished with sheets, blankets, pillowcase, and towels.
- 110-volt outlets are available in each cabin for charging electronic devices
- All cabins have skylights/hatches and small fans for ventilation
- Shared bathroom/shower facilities do NOT have toiletries, so please bring your own.
- Limited storage is available under the bunks.
Check-In / Check-Out
Check-in: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM
You must check in at our office (located at 67 Long Wharf, across from the where the boats are docked at Central Wharf) between the hours of 10 AM and 5:30 PM. You may drop off your bags at our office and they will be transferred to the ship before the last sail of the day (typically before 6:00 PM). We are unable to accommodate for check-ins later than 6:00 PM.
Once the ship has returned after its last sail of the day, you must meet it at the dock on your first night to be shown to your cabin and receive some brief ship orientation. This typically occurs between 8:00 and 9:00 PM, or for an hour immediately following the last scheduled sail. Because you will have to climb down a steep ladder to access your cabin, it is important that a crew member show you where to go and how to move around the ship safely.
The orientation will take only a few minutes. After that, you may come and go as you please for the evening.
NOTE: The orientation is required only for the first evening of your stay. If you are staying 2 or 3 nights, you do not need to meet the ship each evening.
Boarding and Disembarking
Guests will have access to their cabins just after 8:00 PM at the earliest (you will be informed at check in what time the ship will be available for boarding that evening). You will meet the ship over at Central Wharf and will be shown your cabin by a crew member. Your bags will be waiting for you in your cabin!
Guests are asked to disembark the ship no later than 10:00 AM the following morning so that the crew can ready the ship for the first sail of the day.
Because our ships do multiple public sails during the day, you will not have access to your cabin until after the last sail of the day, typically after 8:00 PM. Keep in mind that due to possible schedule changes or private events that you might not be able to board until much later in the evening. You should be informed of what time you will be able to board, but be sure double check in the office during check in.
In general, you will not have access to your cabin between the hours of 10:00 AM and 8:00 PM unless otherwise specified.
3 Night Maximum Stay
For the optimum enjoyment of our guests, we have a maximum limit of a 3 night stay.
Due to the nature of our ships, we require that children must be 8 years old to stay overnight and must be accompanied by an adult in the same cabin.
