The Roseway, a 112-foot schooner designated as a National Historic Landmark, floats up to 76 passengers across the sea on two-hour sunset cruises that mix maritime history with sightseeing. Guests stroll the deck and take pictures while enjoying an included beverage. All proceeds from the cruises go toward World Ocean School’s educational and community-building programs.World Ocean School
Abby E. Kidder and Captain Dwight L. Deckelmann began the nonprofit World Ocean School with an ambition to engage the public on community-building and environmental-ethics issues. They work toward this goal by providing weekly science, math, language-arts, and history programs to middle-school students in the region, as well as by teaching Boston youth maritime history and sailing skills aboard the historic Roseway schooner.
A National Historic Landmark built in 1925, the 112-foot Roseway is used today to ferry groups out to sea on day sails, corporate events, and private charters, with all proceeds being funneled back into World Ocean School’s programs. These aquatic ventures also sail up to 76 people on trips such as sunset cruises, where passengers sip beverages, lounge in the large galley, take in ocean views, and sketch caricatures of Poseidon from memory.
