The cruise follows the paths of ships like the Flying Cloud, Astrea, and Columbia, exploring how their voyages shaped Boston and helped industrialize the country.
Before Boston was a walking city, it was a sailing town. Step aboard the Liberty Star For… A SAIL THROUGH TIME
For most of Boston’s history, the harbor was the center of the city, and urban life was dominated by sailing ships. Step aboard the schooner, Liberty Star, and into that era with experiences recorded by those who lived it: a mother, merchant, sailor, cook, poet, preacher, privateer, diplomat, cabin boy, and others. The cruise follows the paths of ships like the Flying Cloud, Astrea, and Columbia, exploring how their voyages shaped Boston and helped industrialize the country. Under sail (feel free to help the crew hoist the sails!) away from sirens and jackhammers, maritime history comes alive. Your guide will be a docent from Boston By Foot who will share his/her knowledge of harbor history as you see Boston and its skyline from a whole new perspective.
What to Bring
Snacks (chips, etc.) and beverages can be purchased on board for you to enjoy during your sail. Cash bar available. As it is usually cooler on the water we also recommend bringing an extra layer such as a light pullover or jacket.
