ILWACO — The tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain plans a return trip to Port of Ilwaco later this month. The ship, part of the Aberdeen-based nonprofit Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, sails the waters of the Pacific each year along with its companion vessel Lady Washington, offering educational programs, free deck tours and sailing trips.

Hawaiian Chieftain will be docked at Port of Ilwaco, 165 Howerton Ave. On weekdays schools can reserve a trip aboard the ship for the Historical Seaport’s maritime heritage field trip Voyage of Explorers. On weekends the vessel is open to the general public for ticketed Adventure Sails. For the seasickness-prone but curious, stationary dockside Vessel Tours are available daily for a $5 suggested donation.

The steel-hulled Hawaiian Chieftain was launched in 1988 in Lahaina, Hawaii. Together with Lady Washington, it is among the most active educational boats in America, visiting around 40 ports each year.
