The long awaited Summer Solstice occurs during the Tall Ships week, this allows almost 13.5 hours of luxurious sunlight. The sun dips in the western sky, behind the city skyline, during this week of pageantry around 08:25pm each evening. With the new moon, not full moon, ascending it also makes for great star sightings! In other words whether you’re an amateur astronomer or an armchair sailor a sunset tour of the Tall Ships will be a visual feast from the surface of the sea to the celestial heavens. These cruises are very popular while also being one of the most affordable cruises that week. Take in the magnificent sunset as it softens the sky behind the Tall Ships that will be in the Boston Harbor during Sail Boston 2017. Although be forewarned 90 minutes is almost not enough time given the specter that is the vessels and the ever-changing night sky!
