Come aboard the Liberty Clipper every Sunday from June 10th to September 16th, 2018, for a 2.5 hour sailing excursion around Boston Harbor with a fantastic brunch catered by our long-time partners The Silent Chef. Enjoy beautiful views of the Boston skyline while dining on a variety of brunch buffet offerings. Once we are underway and the sails have been hoisted (feel free to volunteer when our crew is looking for assistance!), brunch will be served in the salon. Your choices include a continental style breakfast with fresh fruit, breads, and pastries, as well as a variety of quiches, ham, and other hot breakfast favorites! Vegetarian options are available each week. Are you over 21 years of age? Then you and your friends should be sure to stop by our cash bar for a Mimosa or Bloody Mary! Once your plate and glass are full, why not go back on deck and dine al fresco in the breezes of the harbor? What a way to make your Sunday special.
You can find our ships, the Liberty Star & the Liberty Clipper, by Central Wharf next to the New England Aquarium in Boston Harbor. Sailing times vary as we offer a wide variety of experiences so be sure to check the product list. Once all passengers are aboard, we'll 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 the Liberty Clipper has you well-fed, as well as nice and relaxed, the crew will tie up again where the trip began and we hope your energy is restored for further city exploration. It can get breezy out on the water (remember how you wanted to relax and cool off?) so it is helpful to bring a light sweater or jacket (some Liberty Fleet merchandise is available for sale onboard), as well as sunscreen. And yes, there are bathrooms (called 'heads' on ships!) below deck!
