Day sail on the Pride of Baltimore

What: Pride sails from the Inner Harbor into the Patapsco River, past Fort McHenry and near the Key Bridge, just like Francis Scott Key did during the War of 1812. If the conditions are right, the ship can catch some beautiful wind. With her sails unfurled, Pride is a sight to behold. On board, guests enjoy the fascinating history of Baltimore’s harbor and the role it played in America’s ‘Second War of Independence.’ You’ll hear about the “Star-Spangled Banner” and the ‘Bombs Bursting in Air’ as the ship passes Fort McHenry. You’ll also see the thriving seaport of present-day Baltimore and hear about the city’s successful commercial industry. And you’ll learn more about Pride herself, from her inspiration 200 years ago to the wizardry of her construction as a wooden sailing vessel, to the tragic event that caused an entire city to unite together and create the ship we know today as Pride of Baltimore II.

When: Saturday, September 5 -- 4-6 p.m. -- Sunday, September 6 -- 5-7 p.m. -- Monday, September 7 -- 3-5 p.m. -- tours last two hours.
