Boston Tall Ships: Where to see them and when

For free!

View as Map

Dozens of tall ships will swoop into Boston Harbor this weekend from Europe as part of the Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta, and you can climb aboard.

Tour times are Saturday, 3-10 p.m., and Sunday through Wednesday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. The only exception is for ships berthed at Fish Pier. The tour window there is noon-10 p.m. on Sunday and 4-10 p.m. Monday through Wednesday.

Tours are free. Check Sail Boston for prohibited items and for other details such as streets that the tall ships will affect traffic-wise (best to take public transit and/or walk).
