February 28 – The West Coast’s Tall Ships, Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain, will be making a rare Springtime visit to Monterey, CA. This will be Hawaiian Chieftain’s first visit to town, arriving alone on Feb. 28th. Lady Washington will join Hawaiian Chieftain on March 8th. While in town, the tall ships will offer educational programs, vessel tours, and sailing trips for the general public and by private charter.

Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, the educational non-profit behind the tall ships, is celebrating both vessels’ recent 30th birthdays. The vessels of Historical Seaport are among the most active educational boats in America, visiting over 30 communities each year.

The steel-hulled Hawaiian Chieftain was built in 1988 in Lahaina, HI for Laurence “Baron” Dorcy Jr. Its design reflects the packet trader ships that sailed coastal New England in the mid 1800’s. Hawaiian Chieftain was acquired by Historical Seaport from private ownership in 2005. Hawaiian Chieftain is also the host of Historical Seaport’s professional maritime training program The Seafarer Collective.

The wooden-hulled Lady Washington was built in 1989 in Historical Seaport’s home port of Aberdeen WA to commemorate the centennial of Washington’s statehood. She is a replica of the 18th century vessel of the same name which was the first American ship to make landfall on the West Coast. Movie fans will recognize Lady Washington from her roles in Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek: Generations, ABC’s Once Upon a Time, and many other features.
.
This Spring the tall ships will be docked at the historic Fisherman’s Wharf (84 Fishermans Wharf, Dock #1). Wednesday through Friday, schools can reserve a trip aboard the tall ship for Historical Seaport’s original maritime heritage field trip Voyage of Explorers. On weekends the tall ships are open to the general public for ticketed Adventure SailsBattle Sails, and occasional special events. Vessel Tours, which take place aboard the tall ships as they are docked in port, take place Friday through Sunday by a $5 suggested donation. Hawaiian Chieftain can also be Chartered for private events including weddings, parties, and films.
