Lady Washington to Visit King Harbor, Chula Vista

posted: 11/21/2012
Lady Washington, the official tall ship of the state of Washington, will be making a 20-stop tour of California ports for the 2012-2013 season. It arrived in Redondo Beach’s King Harbor Nov. 21 and will stay through Dec. 5, then it will head to Chula Vista Dec. 7-18.
             
Lady Washington, which is classified as a brig, was launched in 1989 and is a replica of one of the first U.S.-flagged ships to explore the West Coast of North America. The ship, which has appeared in many motion pictures and television shows in recent years, will be available for walk-on tours and adventure sails at both berthing locations.            

Walk-on tours offer a chance for the general public to visit the tall ship and learn more about the ship’s voyages. Crew in period costume will welcome visitors, and no reservations are required. A $3 donation is requested.            

An Adventure Sail is a three-hour excursion that includes opportunities for guests to help raise a sail, learn a sea chantey, hear maritime stories and take the helm, conditions permitting. Tickets for Adventure Sails are $39 for all ages. Tickets can be purchased online at historicalseaport.org or by calling (800) 200-5239.            

The ship is also taking reservations for Kindergarten-12th grade classes and home-school groups, for 1-hour and 3-hour living history education programs aboard the ship. Public schools are eligible for discounts. To learn more or make reservations, contact the education program manager at (800) 200-5239.
