Tall Ships Viewing Cruise FAQs

Do you recommend advance reservations?

We strongly recommend that you reserve your trip.  Trips will sell out.

Can I make a ticket reservation online?

Yes. Click here to reserve your tickets online.

Do you offer discounts for large groups?

We do have discounted group rates for parties of 25 or more. Please fill out our Group Tours inquiry form for more information.

Does the cruise make a stop for passengers to get off and tour the ships?

No, this is a 90-minute cruise that passes the tall ships for viewing.  There will not be any stops for disembarking at the ships.

Is there food/beverages available on board?

Our galleys offer a terrific selection of tasty snacks and beverages along with beer, wine and cocktails. Please Note: at sea, credit/debit card transactions are sometimes not possible, so it’s a good idea to have cash on hand.

Are gift cards available for this special cruise?

Gift cards are available for all BHC cruises, but due to the special nature, magnitude and expected attendance of this event, this cruise - and our other Tall Ships cruises -  will sell out well ahead of time.  Therefore, we strongly suggest that if giving a Tall Ships cruise as a gift, you purchase tickets rather than an unreserved gift card to avoid having the recipient shut out from a sold out cruise.
