My wife and I recently sailed on the Liberty Star in the Virgin Islands for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was a truly unique vacation that we will not forget! If you love sailing and you are looking for more opportunities to do that (without having all the responsibilities!) on a unique vessel in a beautiful location - then this... More

The Liberty Fleet offers more than just a cruise. The trip is an adventure. I sailed aboard the Liberty Clipper schooner through the Bahamas. Super friendly crew, incredible food, and plenty of sun and blue waters. Help hoist the sails, watch the stars at night from deck, jump off the ship into Caribbean blue waters, and play on less crowded... More

In TWO words: JUST DON'T~!! My spouse and I booked this excursion on a romantic Fourth of July getaway. The advertisement offers a "boxed dinner provided by 'the Silent Chef'. When the ad says 'we attempt to position the ship outside the Charles River'--that's exactly what they mean--ATTEMPT TO. There is no cash bar--but the ad states that there is--outright... More

I recently sailed the Liberty Star out of St Thomas. It was the most relaxing and adventure filled experience i have had to date. The crew of 4 made every effort to give us an awesome experience. It is not a glamour luxury sail experience, i consider it more like a summer camp experience which i was very content for.... More

We sailed the Bahamian islands from 1/1/17-1/7/17. My husband, son and father-in-law sailed with them 2 years ago and finally my daughter and I got to come on this trip. This trip exceeded our expectations. We are already talking about sailing with them again. The crew was not only friendly and helpful, they became part of our "ship family." Their... More

I am a repeat customer on this trip. Each time it is something different. The crew is awesome! Captain Noah was very friendly, approachable and nice. The food was very good and the cook was amazing. The remainder of the crew was very friendly and i could not ask for anything more. You are on a tall ship so the... More

The trip did not own up to the expectations that was presented in the website or in conversation with staff in Boston. The website shows visiting an island with pigs visiting an island with iguana mini beach scenes the barbecue on the beach and walking through little towns. It also showed great snorkeling porpoises or Dolphins dancing in the week... More

I had a great sail on the Liberty Star out of Red Hook St Thomas VI on December 4, 2016. I am 65 and the climb in and out of the Star was a bit taxing but the crew really helped, especially Henry. Don't expect luxury because the Star is a real working wood schooner with limited amenities. We had... More

Bought a trip on groupon. Sailed on a beautiful summer day. A ship that can take about 100 and the day we went there were about 25 of us. It was like having your own boat. Staff were very friendly and had lots of information about Boston Harbor and the ship. Customers helped hoist the sails. Two hours of relaxation.... More

I have to add my praise to those who have commented on the GCBSR. This was my first time with the Liberty Clipper. Yes, it is a bit like camping, but that was the experience that I think all of us were seeking. The crew from Capt Kyle to everyone else were thoroughly professional, pleasant, and helpful. Meals very good... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
