Get your tall ship fix this summer, without ever leaving Toledo. The National Museum of the Great Lakes is thrilled to welcome BaySail and the tall ship Appledore IV to Toledo for a special series of programs on the Maumee River this August.
The night sky will come alive during our night sail on the Maumee River with Dr. Michael Cushing, Director of the Ritter Planetarium at the University of Toledo. Enjoy the sunset and the rise of the full moon. Appropriately for the Great Lakes, August’s full moon is also known as the Sturgeon Moon.
The Important Details:
Children under 6 years old are required, by law, to wear a lifejacket at all times while onboard the ship. Participants must provide their own lifejacket for children under 6 years old. All minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Boarding begins 30 minutes before your sail on the dock behind the museum. The ship will leave the dock promptly at 8pm. The sail will take approximately 4 hours. We are not providing food or beverages, but you are welcome to bring your favorite snacks and beverages. No glass bottles or large, bulky coolers. Anything that you carry onto the ship, you need to carry off.
All sails are rain or shine. Dress for the weather and wear non-slip, closed toe shoes. The ship’s captain retains the sole right to determine whether or not a sail will proceed as scheduled. In the unlikely event that the ship does not depart due to unfavorable weather conditions or other factors, tickets will be refunded. If a make-up date becomes available, ticket holders will get the first right of refusal.
