"Lady Washington" makes stop in Monterey for public tours

MONTEREY, Calif. - A boat featured in multiple movies and TV shows has made a pit stop in Monterey, allowing the public to get an in-depth glimpse.

The Lady Washington travels the west coast year-round introducing the public to maritime history. 

"Some people imagine a modern ship, or a Navy cutter," says Executive Director Brandi Bednarik. 'Pirate ship' comes pretty close, but it leaves out the truth of why ships like these sailed-mostly for trade, exploration, and in military action. Our mission is to share this history with the American public."

From November 8th through 20th, the Lady Washington will dock in Old Monterey Wharf. Dockside visitors can expect to tour the vessel and talk with the crew, while sailing passengers will experience the crew in action and the ship under wind power. The vessel's public program schedule is as follows:
