The Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain make educational and ambassadorial appearances along the West Coast—the historical ships are also available for charter. Fully replicated, the vessels once carried freight for trade between 18th century colonial ports, and around the Hawaiian islands.

BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The Gray's Harbor Historical Seaport Authority owns and operates these two ships, and Gray's Harbor is their home port. Lady Washington, a full replica of a tall ship built in the 1750s, is the official ship of the state of Washington. The Hawaiian Chieftain is a replica of a European merchant trader typical in the 1800s.
  • Lady Washington has approximately six miles of rigging and 4,442 square feet of sails.
  • You have several choices for exploring these ships in any of the ports they visit. Dock tours are free, though a small donation is requested. You can book Battle Sails, during which the two ships engage in a mock battle complete with small cannons, or take a three-hour Adventure Sail, helping the crew if you wish. Check for dates and locations.
