Lady Washington in Ventura Harbor
The tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian
Chieftain are now docked at
the Ventura Harbor. Walking tours and 3-hour sailings are available.
There are also a variety of ship activates scheduled.
The Lady Washington, famous for her appearance in Pirate’s of the
Caribbean-The Curse of the Black Pearl, is a full-scale reproduction of
the original ship built in the British Colony of Massachusetts in the
1750’s. The Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain travel down the West
Coast stopping in ports and harbors for historical and educational
visits. These ships host over 15,000 school children a year.
Dockside tours are available for the Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady
Washington from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekends and 4 to 5 p.m. weekdays.
The suggested donations are $3 per person. The ships also offer
three-hour adventure sails, tickets start at $35.
Three-hour battle sails are also available, with the Lady Washington
and Hawaiian Chieftain exchanging loud but harmless gunfire. Those
sails will be offered at 2 p.m. on January 15 and 16.
