Harbor Cruise & Sail On Our 125 Foot Tall Ship Liberty Clipper in Boston

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    You can find the  Liberty Clipper by Central Wharf next to the New England Aquarium in Boston Harbor.  Sailing times are at noon Monday through Saturday and at 3:00 pm seven days a week.  
    Once all passengers are aboard, we'll point the ship into the wind.  At this point you can sit back and relax or ... flex some muscle!  Feel free to 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.  Once the Liberty Clipper has you nice and relaxed, the crew will tie up again where the trip began and we hope your energy is restored for further city exploration.  
    Drinks and snacks can be purchased on board and a bar is set up as well.  It can get breezy out on the water (remember how you wanted to relax and cool off?) so it is helpful to bring a light sweater or jacket (some Liberty Fleet merchandise is available for sale onboard), as well as sunscreen.  And yes, there are bathrooms (called 'heads' on ships!) below deck!

    My wife and I went on the ship for a Sunday brunch trip. This has to be one of the finest birthdays in 68 years! I highly recommend going on this trip while in Boston!

    My husband and I took this cruise around the harbor. It was such a better alternative to the typical motorized boats that offer similar tours. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

    Let's get real, it is a SAILING experience we purchased. We DID NOT sail. We MOTORED around the harbor for two (long) hours and that was it. Of course it was all due to Mother Nature - because, NO WIND! However, it is beyond belief...More

    The entire experience was about 2 hours, but part of that time is undocking and docking. So the actual cruise part may be around 1.5 hours. It was such a wonderful experience!!
