Great crew who will show you around the vessel and explain the parts of the ship, rigging and navigation. Interesting for kids to see this beautifully restored historic ship

We caught up with 'The Lady" in Port Ludlow WA (her homeport is Aberdeen WA). My wife had bought tickets for a 2 hour sea cruise aboard her. The "Hawaiian Chieftain" was also sailing that day and seeing her sail was a great way to understand what was happening with us. The crew are made up of young (and some not so young) volunteers who for $200 for two weeks learn what it means to work as a close knit team in running a square rigged ship. She is a faithfully rendered replica of a ship from the late 1700s. It is fascinating to see the amount of complexity and work needed to sail her. We really enjoyed our time on her, the crew is funny, experienced, singers (sea shanties) and I was in heaven having always wanted to sail on one of these. Here is the link to all the info you will need - http://historicalseaport.org/

My husband and I took a 2 hour sail on the
Lady Washington to celebrate our 6th anniversary. We were married on the
Lady 6yrs before. It was a wonderful time. One of the crew members that had been aboard when we were married was still there. The Captain put up 11of the full 13 sails. And we were moving pretty darn fast. It was such a fun time that really takes you back in time. They travel all over the west coast, so if the Lady Washington in port near by, go take a tour or a sail. It is an amazing trip back to a long ago time. The crew are amazing people. They work so hard, and yet make it look fun also. We will go again , for sure. It was a truly wonderful time.

Wanted to see it but after getting lost (trip advisor directions wrong) the website came up in a language without English letters. There was no phone number to call. Very frustrating. Visitors center told us it wasn't even here now. Disappointed. Probably would have been fun to see.

We just took a free tour of the boat. It is fun to be able to say that you toured the boat the Pirates of the Caribbean was taped on. I would like to ride it one day.
