If you are feeling energetic, help the crew haul up the sails and experience the sounds of times gone by as you sail on our grand tall ship. Once you are onboard our crew will take your order for the bar. Have you tried our signature drink and the sailors’ favorite — a Dark ‘n’ Stormy, featuring Gosling’s dark rum, ginger beer, and a twist of lime? We bring the Caribbean to you and the rum is never gone on our ship. Not a fan of rum? There is also plenty of beer, wine, and mixed drinks onboard. What a unique way to see Boston and relax in the cool breezes of the harbor.
