If you have an adventurous spirit, and you’re seeking a once-in-a-lifetime experience, join us for a Passage.

Also called a “transit,” a Passage is a one-way voyage from from port A to port B. A Passage can be as short as a one-day trip from Oakland to Sausalito in San Francisco Bay, or as long as Aberdeen, Wash., to the San Francisco waterfront, which can take up to eight days.

You’ll get a real “behind the scenes” look at life aboard a modern tall ship. It will be you, the crew, the ship, and the ocean. And what an ocean! The Pacific Ocean and the inland waters we sail are full of interesting marine life, all under a blue sky as far as the eye can see.

Travel Info

Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain operate on a modified 21st century schedule and routine. We depart on time, and we do our best to arrive on time. Our ships travel under wind power when the wind is in our favor, but when it is not, we use the ships’ auxiliary diesel engines.

You might encounter rain, fog, and occasionally rough seas, though we never travel when conditions are unsafe.
