Have you ever experienced sailing on a Tall Ship? Kalmar Nyckel, the Queen of the Tall Ship fleet, will be sailing in Provincetown with morning and late afternoon sails from MacMillan Pier, July 15-29. Wind, water, and sun – it’s the perfect combination of fun and relaxation in three great hours on the water.
You can be a passenger aboard this magnificent square-rigged full scale replica of the armed merchant ship that brought Swedish settlers to North America in 1638.

For details call the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation weekdays at (302) 429-7447.
“Ptown is one of our best ports for great sailing! And Kalmar Nyckel is a beautiful, authentic re-creation of a 17th-Century Tall Ship with amazing carvings and fascinating mechanical features that are unique to its period.” says Captain Lauren Morgens. “Our passengers will always remember their adventures with us and our great crew!”

The Kalmar Nyckel Foundation is a non-profit educational organization with the mission of preserving and promoting the cultural and maritime heritage of Delaware and the Delaware Valley for the education and enrichment of all. The Foundation is a volunteer-based organization that built, owns, and operates Kalmar Nyckel. The Tall Ship of Delaware is a present-day reproduction of the flagship from the 1638 expedition that founded the colony of New Sweden, establishing the first permanent European settlement in the Delaware Valley.
Launched in 1997, Kalmar Nyckel serves as a floating classroom and an inspirational platform that offers people of all ages a variety of sea- and land-based recreational and educational experiences.
