WEST PALM BEACH – PEANUT ISLAND
PUBLIC DOCKSIDE TOURS
Once you step on board the LYNX, you’ll be taking a giant step back in time. You will learn first hand, the important role that Privateers played during the War of 1812. As you walk these decks of history, the crew of the LYNX will explain the Privateer concept and what the day-to-day life of a Privateer was like. Relax, stay as long as you like and investigate every part of this unique living history museum. This is truly an educational experience that is fun for children as well as adults. Once you’ve taken the dockside tour, you will surely want to sign on for a Adventure sail.
PUBLIC ADVENTURE SAIL
Enjoy a rollicking day on the waters aboard a square-topsail schooner of days long past. Join the crew, hoist the sails, steer the ship, and fire the main battery of six-pounder carronades and experience first-hand, the life of an early 19th-century sailor. While underway, the ship’s crew will host several informal “learning stations” that will give a brief outline on early American history, and the important role Baltimore Clippers such as LYNX played during the War of 1812.
