$99 for a Tall Ships Sailing Excursion for Two ($198 Value)
During the Boston Harborfest, the billowing white sails of tall ships stand out against the summer sky. To see these tall ships in style, passengers board a 60-foot Tortola motorsailer for an excursion around Boston Harbor that gives up-close views of the more than 30 ships that were sent to the harbor to commemorate the 200th anniversary of both the War of 1812 and "The Star-Spangled Banner." Patrons can take advantage of the BYOB policy and swig their own personal libations while feasting on provided snacks. During some tours, the Blue Angels soar overhead, adding another majestic touch to the watery jaunts.
Boats set sail at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m., 6 p.m., and 8 p.m. from Friday, June 29, to Wednesday, July 4. Upgrades are also available for an additional fee, such as Special Tall Ships tours, sunset tours, and longer or specialized outings that include light fare, beer, and wine. See the schedule for more information and available dates.
Originally built to sail around the world, the New Horizons motorsailer now spends its days providing Maine hospitality to its guests while gliding along the scenic Northeastern coast of the United States. After boarding the sailboat, groups can take in the sweeping views of the New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and past the Statue of Liberty, while sipping drinks and savoring treats such as the classic Maine lobster roll, which can be purchased on board. Seafarers may also embark on special voyages, such as Lobster Day Sail picnics. With its spacious design, semi-private upper deck, and modern sound system, the New Horizons can handle events that range from large family gatherings to old-fashioned ocean-drinking contests.
