PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- Tall Ships at Penn's Landing will be an eye-filling experience from May 24 to 28. Visitors will also have a chance to sail away.

Cast off on five of the schooners. You'll hear the halyards being hauled away and the rustle and snap of canvas as sails catch the wind. Choose your vessel for one of the daily 90 minute or 2-hour Sail Away cruises on the Delaware. 

What's the thrill? 

"All of us like to picture ourselves out there with Nelson or Barry," said Seaport Museum chief John Brady.

A fantasy of life under sail with the heroes in days when seas where crossed by iron men and wooden ships. 

Three of the smaller vessels, North Wind, When and If or Thomas Lannon, get you closer to water and crew.
