Hawaiian Chieftain, one of the tall ships of Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, will NOT be making her scheduled visit to Aberdeen next month as planned. The vessel, along with its companion vessel and Washington State’s official ship Lady Washington, was set to participate in the Fourth of July festivities at Seaport Landing from July 3 – 7. Lady Washington WILL still be present for scheduled sails and tours.

Hawaiian Chieftain was forced to cancel her Aberdeen visit after maintenance delays during haul out in Port Townsend. The vessel will continue her out of water hull work during the days she was scheduled to appear alongside Lady Washington in Aberdeen. Grays Harbor Historical Seaport expects Hawaiian Chieftain to rejoin Lady Washington as scheduled for Bellingham events later in July.

Both vessels of Grays Harbor Historical Seaport are now 30 years old. They are each among the most active educational boats in America, visiting over 30 West Coast communities each year.

Lady Washington will still be open for scheduled Aberdeen tours and sails from July 3 – July 7, including educational field trips, Adventure and Evening Sails, a special excursion to Westport and back, and the popular annual Fireworks Sail on July 4th. Battle Sails will be changed to Adventure Sails, and guests will automatically be refunded the difference in price.

For information, or to cancel or transfer tickets, guests should call (800) 200-5239.
