Tall Ships in Town

The tall ships Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain are visiting San Pedro for the next few weeks.

The ships are berthed near the Maritime Museum, where they will offer dockside tours, adventure sails and battle sails through early January.

The ships make educational calls at West Coast ports, but the Lady has also appeared on screen in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.”
