Full description
Climb aboard a tall ship replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America's industry more than a century ago. Clipper City was built in the mid-1980s using plans purchased from the Smithsonian. Explore the spacious and comfortable decks with ample seating, a full bar, and a raised quarter deck that allows for unparalleled views of the city and its harbor. Order a drink from the full on-deck bar, sit back and relax, or help the crew raise the sails and take a turn at the helm on this idyllic cruise. This tour is the perfect way to begin or enhance any weekend and enjoy drinks out on the water at night. Feel the beat of the live DJ as you see the world's most famous skyline light up the night.

    Leider eine komplette Enttäuschung. Treffpunkt schlecht bis gar nicht zu finden, kein Hinweis am Treffpunkt. Eigentlicher Startpunkt des Events weit entfernt und fand an diesem Tag auch nicht statt. Zumindest war am Startpunkt kein Schiff zu finden. Ich bin ein erfahrener Reisender der sich bisher überall zurechtgefunden hat.
