Open Ship Hours


When the ship isn't cruising and when we have sufficient staff and volunteer support, we love to open the ship up for public tours!

When the ship is at the dock and not booked for a cruise or event, it is open for public tours Thursday through Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. OPEN SHIP WILL BE CLOSED 2/11-2/25.

Location: Historic Ships Wharf at Lake Union Park in Seattle. Best street address is 860 Terry Ave. N.  For more information about the park and the Historic Ships Wharf, visit this website:

If you are a current or prospective charter client, please contact our Executive Director, Alicia Barnes, to discuss your plans and set up a private tour:
