Tall Ships Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority

Two regular tall ship visitors to the San Francisco Bay Area will spend seven weeks and three days in four ports hosting school children and the public for tours and excursions. Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain, both U.S. Coast Guard-inspected passenger vessels, will stop in Oakland, Antioch, Redwood City, and Sausalito. In each port, the ships will open for walk-on tours and offer public sailings, including the popular two-ship Battle Sails. Here’s the dates for each port:

Oakland (Jack London Square): February 20-29.
Antioch (City Marina): March 2-9.
Redwood City (Port of Redwood City): March 12-23.
Sausalito (Bay Model): March 25 to April 11.

The three-hour Battle Sails feature close-quarters maneuvers with real cannon firing real gunpowder, but no cannon balls. Guests are encouraged to help operate the ship and verbally taunt the adversaries. Tickets are $75 adults, $67 seniors, students, and active military, $39 children 12/under. Most Battle Sails are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The ships will also offer two-hour Adventure Sails, which also feature a chance for guests to help raise a sail or take the helm of a real tall ship, conditions permitting. Tickets are $47 adults, $39 children 12/under. Most Adventure Sails are scheduled at 11 a.m. Sundays.

Purchase all tickets online or call 800-200-5239. No reservations are required for the walk-on tours, which are usually scheduled for 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. For a detailed schedule of tours and sailings, view thePublic Sail Schedule.
