Overview

Experience Boston from the water with this schooner harbor cruise. Sit back and relax or grab a line and help the crew hoist the sails. Your experienced captain will choose a 90-minute route based on wind direction, heading to the outer harbor for views of Fort Independence and the Boston Harbor Islands, or sailing toward East Boston to see the Charlestown Navy Yard, Old North Church, and more.

What to Expect

You can find the Liberty Star by Central Wharf next to the New England Aquarium in Boston Harbor.  Sailing times vary as we offer a wide variety of experiences so be sure to check the product list. 

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 Star 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.  

For harbor sails and sunset sails, 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!

It was a nice little jaunt out onto the harbor. There were beautiful views of Boston from the ship and nice to enjoy some quiet on the water! The crew was very nice and told us a little bit about the islands in the harbor!...More
