  • The Schooner Freedom offers St. Augustine visitors the unique opportunity to sail the waters of this historic city aboard a Class B tall ship. An authentic replica of a 19th-century blockade runner, Freedom is a double-masted, gaff-rigged, topsail schooner that was built by naval architect Merritt Walters in 1982 in Norfolk, Virginia. The Freedom was the first sailing tour boat that was certified by the Coast Guard to carry passengers for hire.

    Freedom was custom-built for use along the Intracoastal Waterway, with a focus on water depth and bridge height to make her perfect for both inland and offshore sailing. Classified as a Class B tall ship with a sparred length of 76 feet, a deck length of 64 feet, and a capacity of 41 passengers, the Schooner Freedom is regularly inspected under the Coast Guard sub-chapter "T" for safety and always sails with one master and two crew members.

    We took the 12:15 trip today 3/4/18. It was cold and windy, but the crew provided blankets and jackets. The trip went very smooth, oh yeah and by the way, the crew was wonderful. Highly recommended.
