We’ll point the ship into the wind and then hoist the sails – grab the line and help us HAUL AWAY to raise the mainsail, foresail, 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.
What to Bring
We serve snacks and beverages onboard 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.
