Barques. Brigantines. Boston.

When the Tall Ships come to town, the waterfront is a forest of spars and rigging. It’s a feast for the eyes—and our buffet lunch is simply a feast. Join us on this 2 1/2-hour cruise through the inner harbor as we view the ships, listen to stories from expert narrators and enjoy a sumptuous meal. 


A Bravo-Worthy Buffet

As the tall ships majestically pass by, you'll be treated to a luncheon from acclaimed Chef Barbara Lynch.  From a stocked raw bar start, to brilliant entree selections, to a sweet dessert finish, a memorable culinary experience awaits as you spend a memorable day on Boston Harbor.  To see the full menu, click here.

Cruise Route

Ships will be located at the Seaport, East Boston and The Charlestown Navy Yard. But the best way to view them is by water with BHC. We’ll get you up close and personal with full hull views not obstructed by docks.

Tall Ships Luncheon Cruise FAQs

Do you recommend advance reservations?

We strongly recommend that you reserve your trip.  Trip 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.

Are beverages available on board?

To complement your buffet lunch, our galleys offer a cash bar with a selection of fruit juices, sodas and other 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.
