Boston Harbor Docking Pilots and the USS Constitution

Boston Harbor Docking Pilots are proud to serve as the pilots of the USS Constitution, the world's oldest commissioned warship afloat, for all of her harbor transits including the annual 4th of July turn-around cruise. For her 200th anniversary, we were honored to sail the Constitution from Boston to Marblehead, Massachusetts, as well as the Anniversary of the War of !812 celebration.

Since the 1800s, there are only two living pilots who have guided the USS Constitution under sail without tugboat assistance, and they are both Boston Harbor Docking Pilots.
