150th Anniversary with the Mystic Whaler


Mystic Whaler

The Mystic Whaler will sail by Stearns Wharf at 11:00 AM and will proceed at 11:30 AM, and again at 12:00 PM with a series of ship-gun salutes from its tall ship.  The Mystic Whaler was built in 1967 in Tarpon Springs, Florida, and designed by V.B. Crockett.  She is a representation of a late 19th-century cargo two-masted schooner. In 1995, she went through a significant overhaul. Mystic Whaler then operated on the East Coast for the next 26 years, conducting educational programs and charters throughout Long Island Sound, Connecticut, and the Chesapeake Bay.  She started her three-month journey to California in October 2021 and was donated to the experiential education nonprofit Central Coast Ocean Adventures in January 2022. Mystic Whaler is Coast Guard certified to carry a maximum of 50 passengers on day sails and 30 passengers for overnight voyages.
