The whole experience. Sitting next to the sails. Watching the sails go up & down. Sitting on the edge of your seat. Watching other people also have fun.

We had a great time on this cruise. Crew was super friendly and made the trip very enjoyable. We did 1.5 hours which was a perfect amount of time. Added a bit of relaxation and pleasure to our busy tour schedule.

A wonderful relaxing day. It was our first experience on a tall ship. The crew was great, skilled and professional. We especially enjoyed talking with Emma about Boston and we wereso impressed with her knowledge and hard work. The cost of the trip was minimal as compared to the true beauty and peacefulness of the sail. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Boston

Lovely sail around the harbor. Cooked us off on a very hot and humid day. Was able to change our reservation last minute by emailing them. Crew was great. Wide selection of drinks to purchase on board.

It was a delightful experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it, It happened to be a hot day so the breeze was great. For those who thought it was too chilly, the crew provided blankets.

Viator sold me a 2 hour sail. The provider only has a 90 minute sail. I feel we were short changed. I should be given a 25% refund. Not happy with Viator’s representation of what they are selling. Beware!!
