Full description
Journey aboard our tall ship the Liberty Clipper for a relaxing afternoon cruise around Boston’s Harbor. While aboard you'll be transported back to the time when the tall ships would come in from the Old World. You can help set the sails, take the wheel, or sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Boston Harbor and the surrounding islands with the city skyline as a backdrop. The Liberty Clipper is a 125-foot gaff-rigged schooner designed after early American privateers. There is a cash-only bar on the ship with beer, wine, mixed-drinks, sodas, bottled water and snacks available. Set sail with us and feel the history on Boston's historic harbor!

This is a nice relaxing sail in the harbor. Really nice crew and other staff, affordable price, affordable simple drinks. Its a very down to earth relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed ourselves. Would be great if crew knew a little bit more about the buildings or history of Boston to share with tourists. All in all..worth the cost. :)

What a relaxing way to spend a couple hours. The captain and crew of the Liberty Star were friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. The sail was smooth and comfortable with drinks and conversation with fellow travelers. We watched the planes land and take off at the airport and had beautiful views of the Boston skyline. Kelly and Shawn were hardworking and accommodating. Worth every penny.
