Pirates of the Caribbean Ship Tours, Period Costumes & Stories
Tall ships are back in the Bay Area offering free walk-on tours while docked in between their cruises.
Check the Public Sail Schedule to see which ships will be docked at your nearest port.
Self guided tours are free. A voluntary $3 per-person donation helps defray expenses. Sailing tickets are $43 a head.
Maritime history comes to life to life aboard the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain, the two historic vessel recreations from the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, an educational non-profit sailing up and down the West Coast to introduce the public to these amazing time capsules. Crews typically are on hand in period costume to answer questions and tell stories.
About the Tall Ships
Lady Washington is a replica of an 18th century sailing ship, and has appeared in several television shows and movies, including “Pirates of the Caribbean,” as Captain Hook’s ship from “Once Upon a Time,” and as the pirate ship from Macklemore’s music video “Can’t Hold Us.”
Hawaiian Chieftain has a fascinating history originating in Hawaii. She’s a swift topsail ketch that has visited Tahiti, the Atlantic Ocean, and once sailed out of Sausalito, Calif.
Longboats Hewett Jackson and Captain Matt Peasley are fun to row and sail. They have changed the lives of Grays Harbor County youth who have participated in longboat educational programs.
