Adventure awaits when Kalmar Nyckel, The Tall Ship of Delaware, returns to Cambridge, MD on Friday, June 2 through Sunday, June 4. Discover the remarkable story behind Kalmar Nyckel, a full-scale replica of the merchant ship that brought Swedish settlers to North America in 1638. The ship will dock at Cambridge Yacht Basin, 100 High Street (and 2 Yacht Club Drive), Cambridge, MD, to offer 2.5-hour sails twice daily during her visit.
Day sails on the Kalmar Nyckel offer a unique, hands-on experience where adventure and education come together. You can haul lines, set sails, and hear tales from the crew, or simply relax and enjoy the ship. Kids will enjoy a scavenger hunt and pirate story (costumes welcome). Only three days of 2.5-hour sails are planned on June 2-4. Tickets are limited and available online (KalmarNyckel.org/explore) or by calling 302.429.7447 for $65 per adult and $40 per child 12 and younger. Advance reservations are highly recommended. The schedule is weather dependent.
“As we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Kalmar Nyckel’s Commissioning and her 25th sailing season, we are excited to return to the beautiful port of Cambridge for the first time in four years. We hope people are ready to sail with us!” says Cathy Parsells, Executive Director of the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation. Captain Lauren Morgens and her volunteer crew are ready to create a special experience for the whole family.
