2016 Public Day Sails, DocksideTours, & Special Event Sails

Thank you again for the memorable sail last weekend. My daughter and I had the time of our lives! [M.L., June 2007]

Public Sails and Dockside Tours are offered at our ports-of-call across Puget Sound during our sailing season from March through October. These 3-hour Public Sails are open to participants of all ages. They are a perfect way to explore Puget Sound and learn about our unique marine environment while sailing aboard a historic tall ship. Participants are encouraged to help raise the sails, sing a sea chantey, and enjoy one of our shipboard classes—or just sit back and enjoy the ride!
