The tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain makes her return trip to Anacortes this week, sailing into Cap Sante Marina on Tuesday.
The tall ship, part of the Washington-based nonprofit Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, sails the waters of the Pacific each year along with its companion vessel Lady Washington, offering educational programs, free deck tours, and sailing trips.
From June 12th - 18th, Hawaiian Chieftain will be docked at Cap Sante Marina.
On weekdays schools can reserve a trip aboard the tall ship for the Historical Seaport's one-of-a-kind maritime heritage field trip Voyage of Explorers.
On weekends the tall ship is open to the general public for ticketed Adventure Sails. For the seasickness-prone but curious, stationary dockside Vessel Tours are available daily for a $5 suggested donation. Hawaiian Chieftain can also be Chartered for private events including weddings and workplace team builders.
The steel hulled Hawaiian Chieftain was launched in 1988 in Lahaina, Hawaii. Together with Lady Washington, the tall ships are among the most active educational boats in America, visiting approximately 40 ports each year. The tall ships offer a glimpse into our historic past, introducing people of all ages to the sights and sounds of 18th and 19th century maritime life.
