Choose Between Two Options

Following a brief presentation with visual aids, students explore harbor waters and instructors reinforce a few basic sailing concepts before introducing more serious sailing terminology. Sailors may explore the downtown harbor or venture out as far as the shores of Spectacle Island and Long Island to view historic lighthouses.

  • $99 for a two-hour harbor cruise for up to four (up to a $250 value)

Participants spend an afternoon touring waters in the inner harbor and islands learning about harbor histories. On each expedition, captains point out waterside landmarks such as the USS Constitution freighter, Bunker Hill Monument, and Old North Church.

Piers Park Sailing Center

Bobby Martin, now the executive director at the nonprofit Piers Park Sailing Center, grew up with a sail line in his hand, touring the Delaware River and the waters surrounding Kent Island and St. Michael's in Maryland. He always knew sailing was in his blood, as he was raised in a family of boat builders and America's Cup competitors. He followed this passion throughout school and into a racing team at Boston University and earned a position as captain by his senior year. The passion for sailing shows through at Piers Park Sailing Center, which train sailors of all ages and ability levels including underserved youth and disabled students.
