The tall ship Lady Washington sails into Bellingham Friday, July 22, 2016 for public tours and sailings.

Fresh off filming for an upcoming motion picture, the tall ship Lady Washington arrived at Squalicum Harbor Marina on Friday, July 22, three days later than previously announced.

Lady Washington’s companion tall ship, Hawaiian Chieftain, sailed into Bellingham on Tuesday, July 19, said Joe Follansbee, communications director for the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport, the nonprofit educational organization that operates the two ships.

The late arrival forced the cancellation of a Wednesday “battle sail” between the two ships, but the balance of the ships’ three-week schedule in Bellingham and Blaine remains unchanged.

Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain will dock at Squalicum Harbor Gate 5 through Aug. 3, then depart Aug. 4 for Blaine Harbor, where they will offer sailing excursions and dockside tours Aug. 5-7 and participate in Drayton Harbor Days, Aug. 6-7.

Cost for sailing excursions is $35 to $75, with group and online booking discounts available. Dockside tours are free, with a $5 requested donation.
