Take a sailing trip back in time with the Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships in Boston this summer. On their Boston Tea Party re-enactment sails that depart from Long Wharf, you'll board the Liberty Clipper, named after John Hancock's ship, and discover the Boston Tea Party during a sail through Boston Harbor. You'll be welcomed aboard by John Hancock dressed in period attire as the crew prepares to hoist sail. The crew will host town hall meetings and fire the ship's cannon. Sam Adams will argue his case protesting the tea tax, and you'll get to help decide whether or not to toss the chests of tea into the harbor. You'll also have the opportunity to help set the sails and even take a turn at the helm with the Captain. Dates vary. All sails depart at noon. Adults, $35; ages 12 and under, $24. The Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships, 67 Long Wharf, Boston. www.libertyfleet.com
