A Relaxing Must
Fri, Aug 28  6:00 PM Unspecified 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
 
Trying to escape busy life for a moment. Then climb onboard and enjoy this relaxing must. Docked behind the beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel you will find a ship and enjoyable crew. My wife and I in our mid thirties, were back in town celebrating our anniversary and found this to be a delightful highlight. Once aboard we were pleasantly treated by Chris and Abby who were two of the working crew. We found a seat on the port side toward the bow. Once we sailed away from the dock Chris and Abby were hard at work raising the sails and explaining what they were doing if asked. They were very socialable and instantly made us feel like friends. Chris did a great job of keeping drinks full and in hand all while performing his duties of maintaining the course of the ship. I'm sure Abby did as well as she attended the starboard side. There were around two dozen on board and everyone appeared comfortable and happy enjoying our sunset sail around Boston Harbor. Tips were NOT asked for however by halfway though the trip I knew we would be showing our appreciation at the end. The views of the harbor were amazing with the sun setting and the lights of the night coming alive. We enjoyed the company of several of the couples that were aboard. Everyone was pleasant and no one appeared overly intoxicated, loud or obnoxious. Please be sure to ask Chris about his treasure map and, what the fine is for spilling red wine on the deck. Lol We purchased some attire which is not requested or promoted but I prefer to support a positive experience anyway I can. The quality of the hat and shirt are wonderful and the designs relaxed and proper. We will plan on another adventure on our return to Boston. Thank you.

Wicked Awesome!

Beautiful boat, great crew, and fantastic views! They don't bring you out much beyond Logan, so the wind and wave action is minimal. It's a very relaxing cruise, and gives you a great new perspective of the city.

This sunset sail was wonderful! The staff was informative and friendly and the ship and accommodations were great. They had wine for sale at a reasonable price and even provided blankets if we were cold. We got to see the whole harbor and had a relaxing sail. I highly recommend and I will be taking another sail soon!

Ratings and Reviews for:
Do sails sell out frequently?
Sails often sell out, and are rarely open for booking more than a week in advance. Check the website or call the week of the date you would like to attend to check availability for public trips and to book as early as possible.
What happens if the sail is sold out?
Unfortunately, we do not have a wait list for our sails, so please book well in advance.
Is there an age limit for these sails?
While there is no age limit for the sails, the goal of our sailing experience is to offer a calm, serene and peaceful time for all passengers. Parents, who know their children best, should make a decision as to whether they want to bring young children. All attendees under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and everyone must have a regular-price ticket.
Is there parking and how much is it?
Limited metered parking can be found around Rowes Wharf. Regular daily rate at the Boston Harbor Hotel is $38. However, with a validation from Classic Harbor Line it will be $32. After 5PM weekdays and anytime on weekends the rate is $18, but with a validation it will be $12. Please be sure to ask our ticket representative for a validation when you check-in.
Why doesn't the schedule list weekdays for more than the next couple of weeks?
The schooners are a very popular choice for private charter sailing, so weekdays are added as they become available for the public, which may not be until just a week or two before the sail date. If the date you are looking for is not currently listed in the schedule, please check back on this website, or contact Classic Harbor Line by clicking “Contact BostonSail”. Many people also use the “Email a Friend” link to send themselves an email so they can easily return to this page for schedule updates.
What exactly do we see on the sail?
While each sail may differ due to wind and other conditions, we try to follow our regular route, which involves heading East out of Harbor, passing the financial district and making our way towards the islands that dot Boston Harbor and then coming back to Rowes Wharf and taking in all that the Boston Skyline has to offer.
Is food served during the sails?
Food is not served on the sail. Feel free to bring your own picnic with you on the sail!
How about drinks? Should I bring those?
No, it is illegal for you to bring your own alcohol on board. All of our sails include soda and water, and there will be beer, wine and champagne available for purchase.
Is the Schooner Adirondack III safe?
Absolutely. The Schooner Adirondack III is a safe and gentle vessel. Along with your captain, there is a minimum of two crew members on every sail to make sure you feel comfortable and at home on the water. We are stocked with water, beverages, blankets, pillows, and life jackets, should you feel you need one. There IS also private marine head (bathroom) below.
How steady is the sailing? Am I likely to get seasick?
The Schooner Adirondack III is a steady, gentle vessel. It is very rare for our guests to become seasick. While most people do not experience any sea sickness on the schooner, you may want to consider light medication if you normally take it for motion sickness. We cannot officially advise you to take any medication, however.
Is there a bathroom on the boat?
Yes, the boat is equipped with a bathroom that is accessible at all times. We call them "marine heads" and they are unlike the bathrooms you use at home. Using a marine head involves pumping, and there are simple directions posted in the bathroom on how to use it.
Can I stow anything (eg, my briefcase) during the sail?
There is an area below deck where you may store your belongings. Please keep in mind that this area is not guarded, so we cannot take responsibility for any broken, lost or missing items. But we have not had any problems with items being left on prior sails.
Where does the sail finish?
Our sails will end at the same pier from which they departed, Rowes Wharf.
Can I get a refund or reschedule my tickets after buying them?
Because we are guaranteeing your space on the sail, tickets cannot be refunded or rescheduled once purchased.
Do you ever cancel sails due to bad weather?
The sail usually runs in light rain and other moderate weather situations. The only time we cancel a trip is in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions. Our captains monitor the radar to watch fronts and cells in the area on days when inclement weather is possible. Cancellations are made on the day of the sail, by the captain, up to one hour prior to sail time. If you have purchased tickets for a sail that is canceled, you will have the opportunity to reschedule your tickets (subject to availability), receive credit towards a future event, or get a refund.
What happens if it starts raining when we're out on our sail?
Don't worry, we won't melt! Trips with a little wetness have proven to be some of the most memorable bonding experiences for our guests. (This all depends on attitude of course...) Light weight, plastic ponchos available for all of our guests aboard the Adirondack III in the case we are caught in a rain-shower.
Is gratuity included in the price of the sail?
Gratuity is not included in the price of the sail.
Are the schooners handicap accessible?
No, unfortunately the schooners are not wheelchair-accessible.
Can I book a private charter sail?
Yes, private sails on the Schooner Adirondack III can be a unique and elegant event for your group. If you are interested in booking a private sail, please contact us by clicking “Contact BostonSail” to the left of the page.
Is smoking permitted during the sail?
No, smoking is not permitted anywhere on the boat.
Are pets allowed on board?
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed on the sails, other than service dogs.
Are gift certificates available for this sail?
Yes, gift certificates are available for the Schooner Adirondack III, and they make a perfect gift for holidays, birthdays or any other occasion! To purchase a gift certificate for this sail, please click on the "Gift certificates: Purchase" link in the box above.
What if I want the gift certificate emailed to the recipient instead?
That's no problem, either! When you purchase your gift certificate, just select the option to have the certificate emailed directly to the recipient and provide their email address. You'll even be able to decide whether you want the email sent immediately or if you'd prefer to schedule it to be emailed on a future date.
