Providence is a fully functional reproduction of the first ship authorized by the Continental Congress for the Continental Navy during the American Revolution. 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. 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.
When a Specialty Sail is scheduled, Dockside Tours will conclude one hour prior to the Specialty Sail. View our current listing of Specialty Sails here.
