Tall Ships in Bodega Bay this Week!

The historic replica vessels, Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain will be in Bodega Bay, on  April 6th, 7th, and 8th.

This is exciting news for sailors and lovers of the sea.

You can ride on one of these boats for a nominal fee, and experience first-hand what it was like to navigate – by sail – the cool, wild waters of the North Coast.

The “Lady Washington”  has appeared in numerous films, including the following:

  • Star Trek: Generations (Paramount Pictures, 1994)
  • The West (IMAX)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (Walt Disney Pictures, 2003)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (Walt Disney Pictures, 2006)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (Walt Disney Pictures, 2007)
  • Blackbeard (Stonewerks Productions)
  • The Real Story: Pirates of the Caribbean (Blink Films for the Smithsonian Channel, 2011)

This writer was lucky enough to have sailed on the Hawaiian Chieftain – from Eureka to Crescent City –  in March, 2010.

The Lady Washington

It was an exciting trip.  We were fortunate, with brisk southern winds and ten-to-twelve foot southerly swells.  We arrived more than an hour quicker than what the captain had plotted on his charts.

You can arrange for a similar adventurous passage, with shared responsibilities, accommodations, and camaraderie with the crew.

They will sing for you:  sea-chanties!

If you want just a simple day-cruise in the harbor – with family, friends and kids – just show up at the dock !!!
