When Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain transit from port to port, they often have a limited number of berths available for passengers. A Passage is a one-way voyage from one location to another and, depending on the ports, they can range from a few hours to several days. All meals are included.

Passage guests will get a “behind the scenes” look at life aboard a modern tall ship and receive a crash course in some of the experiences that make up our crew’s daily work. Some activities you can take part in during a Passage may include:


  • Climbing aloft
  • Standing watch
  • Driving the boat
  • Hauling lines and sailing
  • Daily chores

While Passage guests are welcome to use their time aboard for relaxation, those wishing to participate in the shipboard activities listed above should come prepared to work. No two Passages are the same and experiences may be dependent on time and weather conditions. Requests for any specific tall ship experiences should be communicated at the time of booking to ensure adequate preparation.

We strongly recommend that passengers be in good physical condition when traveling overnight with us. Passages are not recommended for individuals with serious medical conditions requiring specialized medication or assist devices, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines. All Passage guests must submit a medical history form and sign a waiver as part of their booking. For more information, call us at 800-200-5239.

Travel Info

Passages are not available in every port. A limited number of spaces are available for each Passage, so families booking multiple berths are encouraged to contact us as early as possible to ensure full participation. Because Passages are part of one-way transits from one port to another, guests will need to arrange their own return transportation.
