  • Historic Pirate Ships at Carillon Point

    Begins on: From 08/27/2013 to 09/02/2013


    Historic Tall Ships Battle it out this Labor Day weekend at Carillon Point in Kirkland, Washington!

    When: From 08/27/13 through 09/02/13

    Save the date to join the fun and unleash your “inner pirate” as two historic ships - including one used in the filming of "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" - make their way from Tacoma to dock in Kirkland, WA from August 27th through September 2nd, 2013.

    One, the Lady Washington, is better known as the HMS Interceptor from the first in the Disney "Pirates" movie line. In the film, Capt. Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, steals the Interceptor with the help of Will Turner, played by Orlando Bloom. The other ship on display, the Hawaiian Chieftain, is a replica of a centuries-old merchant vessel.

    Over Labor Day Weekend, the ships will offer walk on tours and sailings on Lake Washington during their stay in Kirkland. Crew will be on hand in period costume to answer questions and tell stories. Enjoy a living history experience with demonstrations of tall ship handling, sea shanty singing, and maritime storytelling.

    This unique sailing excursion offers an amazing opportunity to experience an exciting piece of history and witness amazing views of Lake Washington. Tours will depart from Carillon Point guest dock. Sailings are approximately 2 hours and passengers will be treated to adventure or “mock battle” sailings that include fun facts about these unique historical ships.

    The 2pm sailings are family friendly, and the evening sailings will be cocktail cruises (adults only) and beer/wine will be available for purchase. Boxed "snacks" are included for all sailings. Tickets must be purchased for all sailings.
