Head to Ticketfly to book your Ship Tours and Sail Away Cruises now. Tickets are timed to minimize wait times and maximize your experience, so be sure to plot your course in advance. As an added bonus, admission to both the Waterfront Festival and Independence Seaport Museum is included with each Tour or Cruise ticket purchase, allowing you to view these majestic tall ships on land, on deck, and on water.
Timed Ship Tours & Early Entry Ship Tours:
Climb aboard for self-guided tours of one or more tall ships. Ship tours are available Friday, May 25 through Monday, May 28. A tip from the crew: allow an average of 30 minutes per ship visit and an hour between each timed ticket to ensure smooth festival sailing.
For the seasoned sailor, purchase limited edition Early Entry tickets to beat the crowds and tour tall ships with fewer people and more time to explore between 11 am and noon prior to general boarding. Your Early Entry ticket also includes non-timed entry on all touring ships for the rest of the day.
