Last Sunday was the perfect weather. It was a sunny, 80 degree day and my family and I had the privilege of sailing on a schooner around the Boston Harbor. There isn’t anything better than sailing in Boston!It was quaint with four of us, another family of three, and the three member crew. The captain normally sails in New York and was equally excited to sail on the harbor and see the city from the water. We sailed on the beautiful Adirondack III.
The crew was great checking in with us often to see if we wanted water or soda. They were knowledgeable and friendly pointing out certain prominent buildings in the city. After we got going we were able to walk around the schooner. It is in pristine condition, shiny and super clean. It is impressive and you can’t truly appreciate it until you see it for yourself.
The Adirondack III is 80 feet long and seats up to 41 people. I would recommend when making reservations to see how many are sailing. Although it is roomy, I believe it would be much more enjoyable with 20 or less.
It is a unique experience and a great way to see Boston. We did the day sail which is normally $42 per person. There is also a sunset sail for $38 (hour and a half as opposed to two hours on the day sail).
I would definitely say this is great way to spend a summer day close to home if you live in New England. My only misfortune is the fact my good pictures are not downloading from my camera! I included my not-so-great ones from my phone. Trust me, they don’t shed enough light on the beauty of the city from the harbor.
