The topsail ketch Hawaiian Chieftain is scheduled to arrive at the historic Sacramento riverfront on Tuesday, Oct. 9 for her annual schedule of K-12 educational programs and public tours.

The tall ship will arrive in the late afternoon and tie up just upriver of the Tower Bridge near 1210 Front St. in Sacramento. Hawaiian Chieftain will stay in Sacramento through Dec. 9.

The ship is currently taking reservations for one-hour dockside and three-hour sailing programs for K-12 schools, youth service groups, and other organizations. Most available dates and times are on Saturdays and Sundays at this time.

For pricing visit the Historical Seaport’s Voyages of Discovery program page at

To make reservations call 800-200-5239.

Throughout the ship’s visit, the general public is invited to tour Hawaiian Chieftain Tuesdays through Fridays, 4 to 5 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Crew in 18th century costume will be available to answer questions about the vessel’s voyages and discuss her educational programming.

A $3 donation per visitor is appreciated. The ship will be closed Thanksgiving Day.

Launched in 1988 at Lahaina, Hawaii, Hawaiian Chieftain is an interpretation of a typical early 19th century coastal trading vessel. The ship sails to more than 50 ports a year in California, Washington, Oregon and British Columbia delivering living history educational programs to K-12 students, service organizations, and the general public.

Hawaiian Chieftain is also available for charter to film and television production companies, private individuals, and local businesses.

Hawaiian Chieftain is owned and operated by the non-profit Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, which is based in Aberdeen, Wash.
