Spend a day in Freeport exploring the Bahamas' most prestigious ship -- the Alexander von Humboldt, which served 105 years as a sail training ship for the German Sail Training Association.

The tall ship excursion was AMAZING!! Highly highly recommend!!The crew keeps you entertained, and will even allow you to help with the lines if you want. This was the highlight of our week.

The tour was everything advertised, and towards the end of cruise the relaxing atmosphere was very welcome. My only problem with Freeport itself is the lack of time in port.

Too long not worth the money. They need to reduce the price to an hour long tour/demonstration. The captain and crew were wonderful and informative but they didn't need 3hrs.

Loved sailing on Alex! It's a great experience on a real sailing ship. We'd do this excursion again in a heartbeat.

Sailed aboard the beautiful historical windjammer sailing ship, Alexander von Humboldt. The crew is unique because it is comprised of a German crew and a Bahamian crew! The German crew swaps out every month with a new group from Germany and they are teaching the Bahamian crew the ropes. Very exciting to be able to sail on such a historical sailing ship with beautiful sails and get to see the crew climbing high up to adjust the sails and work together to let the sails out or roll them up. They even let you stand at the wheel and take pics. Very personable attention by all on board and especially from the Bahamians, who walk you to and from the ship. A lovely experience that we will look forward to again. Shouts out to Demethrie, Shannon, Denise, Ahmad, and Mike! Tips for future passengers: The day we were on board it was lightly raining on and off and the winds were practically nonexistent, and it was still a blast; so, if it's sunny and breezy you will have a ton of fun. Beer is available in the galley below and tee shirts too that say Crew on the back and have a pic of the ship on the front. Next to last tip: Plenty of things to buy when you get off the ship and are outside amid the taxis and little refreshment shops. Look for the lineup of tables with tons of souvenirs. Final tip: We went to Zorba's in the Lucayan Marketplace for lunch and got huge plates of fried conch and fried grouper which were absolutely wonderful! The Bahama Mama was excellent, as well. If we could go back, we would try to find the Lucaya Beach too, which I think is across the road from the Lucayan Marketplace. A completely wonderful excursion. Loved it.

Amazing! Setting sail on a 100 year old square rigger was beyond our expectations. It was such a thrill watching the crew haul the sails up and chase the wind, it was a day we will never forget.
