We decided to do this on a whim, and we are so happy that we did. Our sunset cruise was for 2 hours. The crew was friendly and very professional. Viewing the city lights from out in the ship was breathtaking.

I wasted about 2 hours of precious tourist time on this useless ride. It's much more interesting thing to rent a kayak. It's not sailing ship but a motor boat. Besides, these crews beg for tips! Even if it is free (I used go boston card) you shouldn't do this.

Hi Samuel, It seems like you choose a day of sailing with poor wind conditions, as the Liberty Clipper is currently doing 8 knots under full sail going down the East Coast on her way to her winter cruising grounds (just departed Mystic, CT) in the Bahamas, I can assure the reviewer, and anyone interested that we are not a...

I registered online, mid-afternoon, for a mid-day sail, the next day. The email confirmation didn't have directions. So, the next day, I got to the wharf and had to ask around where to go. There was nobody at the stand with their logo. Nearly at the time that would have been the departure, someone arrived and we were told that... More

My husband and I spent two hours cruising the Boston harbor on a fabulous, almost-fall, Sunday afternoon. The crew couldn't have been nicer and we took advantage of the opportunity to help hoist the sails . . . A very relaxing and fun way to spend a couple of hours in Boston, enjoy the skyline from a different vantage point,... More

We took the Liberty Clipper's brunch cruise on Sunday morning. Helped hoist the sails! The captain was pleasant and informative as were all the crew members. The brunch was delicious. Well worth the cost and the 3 hours cruise. Thinking about taking one of their week long adventures in the Caribbean during the winter.

Recently, me and my wife have stayed three nights in a row on a B&B basis on the Schooner Liberty. Some good things have happened : people were nice even if the girl who greeted us was reluctant to give us the deluxe chamber for which we have had paid, there was good mattresses, clean linen and towels and proper...

We had planned to entertain customers with a harbor cruise with Liberty. The morning of the cruise they had a problem with the ship we had reserved which would have ruined the event but they provided us with great service by finding another company to host our event. Based on this alone, it is worth using this company when they... More

We arrived on saturday night and the ship was out til 10.30pm for the Rum and revolution sailing cruise. Probably that's why the Crew looked like really drunk when welcomed us! It's really inappropriate. Anyway, the cabin is really small and dirty (do not lift the matress!!!), even if i'm used to sail so i did not expect an awesome... More

We completely enjoyed sailing in Boston Harbor on the Liberty Clipper! The ship is great and the crew was fantastic! There wasn't much wind that day, but I don't suppose the Captain has much control over that! We'll go again and bring some friends!

I was in Boston celebrating my wedding anniversary. A friend of mine had mentioned the tour a week prior. I was surprised it was not sold out. I'm told that around 100 people sail at a time and the schooner goes out 3-4 times a day. First impression: The Schooner was well cared for. Although we sailed at 8:30 pm,... More
