Owned by Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, the tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain operate to both promote and preserve maritime history and traditions by providing hands-on Sail Training and educational opportunities for adults and children alike.
Whilst the design of Hawaiian Chieftain was influenced by early colonial passenger and Atlantic coast packet service vessels, Lady Washington is a replica of her namesake 18th Century brig, which was the first US flagged vessel to visit Japan, Honolulu and Hong Kong, pioneering the pan-pacific trade.
Please note that Lady Washington will visit from April 18th to 23rd and Hawaiian Chieftain will visit from April 20th to May 1st.
Whilst in Newport these beautiful tall ships will be offering a unique historical experience - battle sails. A family-friendly experience of tall ships sailing, complete with plenty of rope handling, shanty singing and perhaps even some cannon fire!
For details of the public opening hours and the battle sail schedule please refer to the official website as both are ticketed events that may require booking in advance.
