Even my tech-loving kids had fun! … We actually LEARNED a few things about American and Alexandrian history, and were entertained at the same time. - TripAdvisor Review
When you sign up to tour Providence, you step back in time into the shoes of a sailor fighting the American Revolution. A sailor straight out of the 18th Century will assign you your role among the crew, show you the ropes, and give a short briefing on your duties and the mission assigned to Providence by the higher ups of the Continental Navy. When you’re ready, you will board Providence and present yourself to her esteemed captain – the legendary John Paul Jones, Father of the American Navy. From there, you will visit the quarterdeck, the main deck, the captain’s cabin, and the hold to see where you’ll be spending the next several months during your time at sea. You may even learn to load a cannon!
After disembarking, you will head to the Naval History Theater for an exclusive showing of the short film, Providence: Dawn of the US Navy, produced especially for Tall Ship Providence and featuring four subject matter experts and many beautiful shots of the ship at sea.
