Tall Ship Overnights FAQ
Check here for some of our Frequently Asked Questions about our Tall Ship Overnights accommodations.
- Am I really staying on a boat?
Yes! We have no dockside or land-based accommodations. Your cabins are actually on a tall ship!
- Is the boat tied up at night?
Yes. Each evening our ships are tied securely to the dock at Central Wharf next to the New England Aquarium.
- Is breakfast served in the morning?
While we do not provide breakfast on board, there are several great options for you to grab something in the morning nearby. You can find plenty of delicious options by venturing into the North End for a delicious pastry (or three) and of course the perfect espresso. Many other restaurants can also be found in the Long Wharf and Faneuil Hall Quincy Marketplace area. For suggestions, try TripAdvisor or ask our crew!
- Is there parking?
We do not have private parking for guests, but there are several garages in downtown Boston. See our DIRECTIONS page for information about nearby parking options. We have also found the SpotHero app to be very helpful in finding parking nearby.
- Why can I only stay 3 nights?
Due to limited accessibility and the “rustic” nature of our cabins, we find that most guests enjoy shorter stays rather than extended ones.
- Why can't you accommodate late check-ins and arrival times?
Our office closes promptly at 6:00 PM and the ships leave for their sunset sails at 6:00 and 6:30, so we will unfortunately not be able to assist you after this time. If you run into travel delays, please call us at 617-742-0333.
- Do I really need to meet the ship after its last sail for boarding?
Yes. To make your stay with us more enjoyable, please plan to meet the ship for boarding when it returns after the last sail of the day on the first night of your stay so the crew can show you to your room and how to use the facilities on board.
- My travel plans are delayed, what should I do?
Please call our office as soon as possible at 617-742-0333.
- Can I stay in my cabin during the day?
As our ships run several harbor sails during the day, we cannot allow any overnight guests to stay on board while the ship is working. You are, of course, welcome to come aboard for most sails at a 30% discount! Besides, there are lots of places in Boston to explore – come by our office for maps and suggestions about things to see and how to get there!
- Are these accommodations appropriate for children?
Children must be 8 years old and all junior guests between the ages of 8 and 18 must have an adult staying with them in their cabin.
- Is there WiFi on the ships?
We do not have WiFi service available on board. There is a limited connection along the Harbor Walk on the Long Wharf and Central Wharf areas. If you require something a little more robust, there are a number of coffee shops in the area with free WiFi and some semi-public access at the Marriott Long Wharf.
