Spend 3 hours on an authentic wooden tall ship, and be in the epicentre of a cannon battle between two tall ships!

Lady Washington and her companion vessel the Hawaiian Chieftain will visit Richmond and offer exciting family-oriented Battle Sails.

The popular Battle Sail features booming cannons, fast-paced maneuvers, and a taste of 18th century life aboard tall ships. Experience tall ships in action as they vie to win the battle, featuring live black powder cannon fire!

This is the best option for families and groups looking for excitement and adventure – and who love a loud cannon blast!

A ticket is required for all passengers, including babies. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Earplugs recommended for anyone sensitive to loud noise.

Launched on March 7, 1989, the new Lady Washington is a full-scale replica of the original Lady Washington.

The modern Lady Washington, constructed as a brig, was thoroughly researched by historians and traditionally constructed by skilled shipwrights. She was launched as part of the 1989 Washington State Centennial celebration. The new Lady Washington is a U.S. Coast Guard inspected and certified passenger sailing vessel.

Over the years, Lady Washington has appeared in several motion pictures and television shows, including Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Star Trek: Generations, Once Upon A Time, and Revolution.
