The tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain have announced stops for their fall 2014 tour of California ports. The ships will offer kindergarten-12 education programs, public ticketed sails and walk-on tours at each stop.
Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain visit California ports from September through April each year, bringing hands-on living history experiences to young people in more than a dozen ports on California’s coast.
Lady Washington is the official ship of Washington State and she has appeared in several movies and television shows, most recently ABC-TV’s “Once Upon A Time” and NBC’s “Revolution.”
Hawaiian Chieftain specializes in kindergarten-12 education programs and accompanies Lady Washington on many of her voyages.
Hawaiian Chieftain arrives in the San Francisco Bay Area on Sept. 12. The ship will travel up the Sacramento River and spend several more weeks in Sacramento than in past years due to high demand for her education programs.
Stops are planned in Oakland on Sept.12-14, in Antioch on Sept. 16-21, in Sacramento on Sept. 22-Dec. 5 and in Long Beach on Dec. 10-16.
Lady Washington will arrive in the San Francisco Bay Area on Oct. 10 and visit six ports on the California coast through Dec. 16.
Lady Washington’s schedule includes Oct. 10-19 in Oakland, Oct. 20-Nov. 5 in San Francisco, Nov. 6-19 in Half Moon Bay, Nov. 20-30 in Moss Landing, Dec. 2-8 in Morro Bay and Dec. 10-16 in Long Beach.
