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.

Climb aboard and step back in time as you relive history aboard an 1812 privateer. Join the crew and hoist the sails, steer the ship, fire the main battery of six-pounder carronades and experience first hand life aboard a traditional, square topsail schooner. Get ready to rumble as you and your kids take part in this unique, interactive sailing adventure.

Day sailing trips can be scheduled during port visits. Such trips are perfect opportunities for businesses, their employees or clients, individuals, families, adult or student groups and organizations. Lend a hand hoisting 5,000 square feet of sail, or just relax and enjoy the scenery. These interactive sails are a unique way to spend time with your family, friends or co-workers.

Coastal Passage and Offshore Voyage

These voyages are for the true adventurer willing to leave the modern world behind and embark on a high seas adventure. These voyages can be tailored to the sailor interested in passage planning, basic piloting and celestial navigation, mechanical systems, and weather observation.


Dockside Tour

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.
