The Adventure Sail is a two-hour family-oriented educational excursion offering an opportunity for guests to help raise a sail, sing a sea shanty, hear maritime stories, and take the helm of a real tall ship, conditions permitting. Tickets for the Adventure Sail are $39 for all ages. Purchase tickets for all sailings online or call 800-200-5239.
