Tall Ship Lady Washington comes to Bellingham, Friday Harbor


Lady Washington, a full-scale replica built in Aberdeen, WA, can generally be found docked at various Washington harbors throughout the summer months. The original ship has a rich history as the first American vessel to make landfall on the west coast of North America. The modern Lady Washington has been featured in films such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Trek.

Lady Washington will be available for adventure and evening sails in Bellingham from Thursday, August 12 through Monday, August 23. Docking next in Friday Harbor, she will be available for adventure and evening sails off of San Juan Island from Thursday, August 26 through Monday, August 29. Sails aboard the Lady Washington wouldn’t be complete without demonstrations on tall ship handling, sea shanty singing, and a bit of the history of American maritime exploration.

If being out on the water isn’t for you, Lady Washington also offers 30-minute dockside tours for a suggested donation of $5 per person.
