Boston Harbor Sunset Sails

Enjoy a Boston Sunset Sail aboard a classic schooner.

Enjoy a beautiful Boston sunset sail!If Boston is the best from the water, then by far the best time to see it is during a summer sunset cruise on a classic schooner! 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 Boston sunset sail is a great way to end a busy day or to start out a fantastic night.
