Touring the Tall Ships

June 16, 2009 at 7:09 pm 2 comments

The Tall Ships are a welcome throwback to the history of sailing. Something about the Tall Ships just looks right on the open ocean, especially in comparison to the modern speedboats and giant ocean barges you’ll often see. The Tall Ships are works of art, entrenched into our history in many important ways. Some of the most famous naval wars and discoveries were on board tall ships, from Columbus’ famous voyage, to the Revolutionary War in the United States.

These ships are always on the move, docking in various cities across the world as lensmaster Mac33 points out on the “Tour a Tall Ship” lens. On the lens, you’ll find various resources to find where ships are currently in the world via a live map, as well as links to some of the famous ships worldwide that you can tour.

Here are some other seaside destinations this blog has reviewed that have been known to have some tall ships visit now and again:
