For most of Boston's history, the harbor was the center of the city, and urban life was dominated by sailing ships. Step aboard the schooner, Liberty Clipper, and into that era with experiences recorded by those who lived it: a mother, merchant, sailor, poet, preacher, privateer, diplomat, cabin boy, and others. The cruise follows the paths of ships like the Flying Cloud, Astrea, and Columbia, exploring how their voyages shaped Boston and developed the growing nation. Under sail, away from sirens and jackhammers, maritime history comes alive!
Depending on the weather, the 120-minute sail follows the harbor channel out to Castle Island, or the shorelines of East Boston, Charlestown, and the North End.
This sail is presented in partnership with the Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships.
