What You Can Expect

Boston Tall Ship Day Cruise

Cruising the Boston Bay

Departing from Rowes Wharf at your selected departure time, hop aboard the Adirondack III, a classic 80-foot (24-meter) schooner, for a 1.5-hour or 2-hour ride that’s as smooth and gentle as it is brisk and invigorating.

Enjoy amazing views of important Boston landmarks including the Boston Fish Pier, the Moakley Federal Courthouse at Fan Pier, Castle Island and the Donald McKay monument. You’ll also pass the Inner Harbor Islands, Waterfront Park and the New England Aquarium.

Aboard your tall ship sailing vessel, your friendly and knowledgeable captain and crew will answer your questions about the sights and history of Boston Harbor and its surrounding areas. From interesting facts to old-time legends, the maritime world of Boston has many great stories to offer. Ask them anything you'd like to know!

Soda and water are complimentary, with other non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks including beer and wine available for purchase. Feel free to bring your own picnic breakfast or lunch on board to enjoy as you take in the sights.

Absolutely loved this cruise. It was a beautiful day and it was awesome. A must do if you are in Boston. Great pictures to be had of Boston from the water. Excellent crew, very friendly and helpful. If you get cold they hand out blankets to keep you warm. You can also take your own food on board and buy alcoholic drinks, but the sodas are free.
