Three-hour Battle Sails are recreations of a typical 18th-century style

naval skirmish close quarters maneuvers using the same commands and tactics of American warships of the Revolutionary War. Tickets are $43 to $63, depending on age. Purchase tickets online (see below) or call 800-200-5239. 

 

   

 The two ships travel together to more than 40 West Coast ports, offering living history programs to young people and adults. Lady Washington was launched in 1989 for Washington State’s centennial celebration. Launched in 1988, Hawaiian Chieftain specializes in K-12 education programs.
