Tall Ship Windjammer Cruise Sailing Vacations...

Full Sail

 

A Windjammer sailing vacation aboard the tall ship Liberty Clipper is a cruise aboard an historic tall ship. You will be welcomed aboard by our professional crew who are there to ensure your safety and enjoyment. A Windjammer Cruise is a unique cruise experience where the destinations of each cruise are influenced by the winds and tides to provide the ultimate in relaxation and peacefulness on the water. If you want excitement, the crew will welcome you to help raise the sails, learn navigation and participate in the sailing of the ship. You can join the captain at the helm and look forward over the 125-foot ship as she drives forward under a canopy of sail billowing above you...

 

 

Charcoal Grill for Fish & SteaksWe maintain a professional Chef aboard the ship to provide home-cooked meals daily. All of our trips will also feature either a Chesapeake Bay Crab Boil or a Caribbean Lobster Bake. There are fresh baked breads each morning, local seafood, fruits and other local favorites. The Liberty Clipper is renowned for her great fare and guests will never leave hungry.

A Typical Day...

You will wake each day to the gentle sounds of water lapping against the hull, sea birds looking for their morning meal and the gentle sway of the ship at anchor. Your day will start with a wonderful breakfast served on the main deck at your leisure. With fresh brewed coffee, fruits, breads and any combination from waffles to cereal, you'll find something to start your day off right! After a relaxing start, we will begin the day's sail. Typically the ship will sail from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. The day is your time to relax, take a cat-nap, read a good book, listen to the Captain tell sea stories or help sail the ship.

Dolphins Swim in the Wake

Aboard the Liberty Clipper, you will have the opportunity to explore the ship and join in the sailing alongside our crew if you choose to. You may head forward to find dolphins swimming under the bowsprit. Back aft, the captain and crew will show you how to tend sails and let you take a turn at the wheel while the power and mystique of a traditional gaff rigged schooner extends before you. Blazing white canvas will billow above your head, and the stiff breeze will draw the ship forward to her next port of call where once again you will sleep soundly as the soft waves lap against the hull.
