The Foss Waterway Seaport will welcome the tall ship Lady Washington from June 13-23. The ship will be docked at the Seaport, and will offer FREE dockside tours to museum visitors presenting their admission sticker or receipt. Sailing excursions will also be available.

Launched in 1989 to celebrate Washington’s centennial, Lady Washington has appeared in several movies and TV programs, including “Once Upon A Time.” She was designated by the Legislature as Washington State’s official tall ship in 2007. She acts as a tall ship ambassador for the state and Grays Harbor County, visiting as many as 40 west coast ports a year. The vessel is a US Coast Guard inspected passenger vessel that offers educational programs in Washington, Oregon and California.
