  • Raise Sails With Us

    Come join us in raising a sail,

    just like the fishermen and sailors of our coastal history did every day.
  • Learn the Language

    Learn the language

    and "anatomy" of a tall ship: sailing terms, knots, rigging, docking procedures, and more...
  • President "Skip" Nordahl

    Take a turn at the wheel,

    as Kitsap Maritime Heritage Foundation President "Skip" Nordal is doing.
  • Enjoy the Puget Sound

    Enjoy the sights and sounds

    of the Puget Sound from the deck of a real tall experience never to be forgotten.
  • Come Sail With Us!

    Come sail with us. Feel the sea wind in your face,

    the deck rolling beneath your feet, and the mournful serenade of sea birds. Get involved.
"Ships are the nearest things to dreams that hands have ever made." -Robert N. Rose
