The Best Instagrams of Bostonโ€™s Tall Ships

The photogenic Sail Boston 2017 kicked off this weekend. By Spencer Buell and Casey Russell

The Tall Ships sailed into Boston this weekend, bringing crowds of spectators to ogle their huge, elegant majesty. Fifty-six ships took part in a Parade of Sail Saturday morning, and now each of them are available to board (for free!) on docks around the city, where they will stay until they leave Thursday morning. Itโ€™s a rare opportunity to see so many Tall Ships in one place up close, and for those with the eye for it, itโ€™s a great chance to get some premium Instagram pics. We strongly recommend you go see it for yourself. In the meantime, here are the best Instagrams of Sail Boston 2017. 

The Parade of Tall Ships! These beautiful vessels will be docked in Boston and available for tours until Wednesday!
