Tall Ship Days In Coos Bay

April 23, 2015

If you are looking for something unique to experience while traveling along the Oregon Coast or planning your next trip to our Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort, then the Tall Ship Days In Coos Bay might be a breath of seaside fresh air.

This year’s events will feature Lady Washington, a vessel based on the historic 18th century sailing ship that was the first to reach landfall on the west coast of North America and Hawaiian Chieftain, a ship built based on the design practices that helped produce some of the most durable ships in the 1850s.

If Lady Washington looks familiar, you may recognize her from such films and televisions programs as Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl or Once Upon A Time! She is also the official tall ship of the state of Washington and graces Coos Bay with her presence every May.

The events take place from May 1 – May 12 and include walk-on tours with guides dressed in period costumes, sailing adventures where you can help take the helm, and battle sails, a recreation of an 18th century naval skirmish, complete with real gunpowder and cannons. Sorry though, no real cannon balls will be fired at this event.

There will also be other sources of entertainment provided during this time: wine walks, pub crawls, boat shows, movie screening events, and educational displays and programs.

Pricing for the various offerings ranges from $3 - $75 and additional details regarding pricing and the schedule of events can be found at the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport website.
