For the past 18 year, Grays Harborites have known exactly where they will be on the last weekend of every June. Rusty Scuppers Pirate Daze is a beloved Westport tradition that brings out all of the region’s (family friendly) buccaneers, scalawags, and marauders. This year, Grays Harbor Historical Seaport is sending Lady Washington to the festival for the first time since 2017, offering her regular tours and sails plus a few surprises!

As a special event, Lady Washington will be hosting themed Pirate Sails along with the talented costumed performers of The Dredship Outrageous Fortune. On Sat. June 29th and Sun. June 30th, the 2:00 – 4:00 Adventure Sails will be overrun with pirates! In the scenario, the pirates of the Outrageous Fortune will commandeer the Lady Washington just as all the passengers are aboard and ready to set sail. But there’s just one problem: the pirates don’t know how to sail a tall ship! It will be up to the pirate, Lady Washington crew, and the guests to work together to ply the waters of Grays Harbor in search of treasure and adventure, all before dinner time!

Tickets for these one of a kind Pirate Sails sold out in a flash, but Lady Washington still has tickets available for her other activities in Westport. Guests can enjoy a relaxing Evening Sail after a long day of swashbuckling, and no tickets are ever required to visit our tall ships during dockside Vessel Tours (available 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday). Plus, there is fun for the whole fleet at Rusty Scuppers, including food, themed musical performances, vendors and games, and more!

Don’t miss this special weekend in Westport where everyone can be a pirate for a day!
