Know More about this tour

You can find our ships, the Liberty Star & the Liberty Clipper, by Central Wharf next to the New England Aquarium in Boston Harbor.  The Liberty Clipper departs the wharf at 6:00pm and the Liberty Star leaves at 6:30pm.  
As the day comes to an end and the sun is close to setting, your captain will get the ship underway and 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 your sunset sail has you nice and relaxed, the crew will tie up again where the trip began and we hope your energy is restored for further evening fun.
For 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 so it is helpful to bring a light sweater or jacket (some Liberty Fleet merchandise is available for sale onboard).  And yes, there are bathrooms (called 'heads' on ships!) below deck!
