Tall Ship Providence



Take a tour of Providence and be transported back in time and learn what daily life was like for the men and boys who sailed during the 18th century.

Providence is a reproduction of the first ship authorized by the Continental Congress for the Continental Navy during the American Revolution.

During the tour you will stand on the quarterdeck, and imagine yourself as a Navy Captain giving orders to your crew, go below decks and experience the small space sailors called home while at sea. Visit the Captain's Cabin, explore the main deck, and learn about Providence's film debut in Pirates of the Caribbean. Tours are approximately 15-30 minutes.

Or join us for a sail! Learn about Providence's history, join the crew and help haul the lines to set the sails, explore the main deck and quarterdeck or sit back and simply relax. During this immersive experience, you will have an opportunity to visit the Captain's Captain and go below decks to see where sailors lived and learn what life was like during the 18th century. Sails are approximately two and a half hours.
