Description

Ahoy Mateys! Come Sail on Kalmar Nyckel, the Tall Ship of Delaware. Landlubbers — come walk the plank of this authentic seagoing re-creation of a 17th-Century Dutch Pinnace.  Their crew don pirate and sailor garb, and guests are encouraged to dress up as well!  The kids will enjoy a pirate story or help raise the Jolly Roger, and the adults will enjoy a history talk.  Both kids and adults can try their hand at a scavenger hunt with a treasure at the end!  See the ship’s cannons and imagine being at the helm of this magnificent vessel.  Join their captain and a crew of salty pirates for a festive experience on the high seas!
