ASTORIA — The Lady Washington, a “tall ship” that has made appearances in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Star Trek” films, will dock at the Port of Astoria from June 7 through 9 during the town’s Goonies festivities.

Walk-on tours will be offered for a $5 donation all three days, starting at different times but ending at 5 p.m. Evening sails will take place 6 p.m. June 7 and 9 for $42-$49.

Normally ported in Grays Harbor, Washington, the ship is making a tour of three Oregon Coast towns, hitting Newport and Coos Bay in late May before reaching Astoria next month. In Newport and Coos Bay — but not in Astoria — the Lady Washington will be seen with the Hawaiian Chieftain, another tall ship that has appeared in big-budget entertainment. The ships are detailed replicas of 19th century trading vessels.

“In all three spots, they will offer walk-on tours, sailing excursions, educational programs about maritime life nearly 200 years ago and even sea shanties. There will even be battle cruises with simulation battles,” Oregon Coast Beach Connection staff wrote.

For Newport and Astoria visits, a ticket is required for all passengers, including “babes in arms,” organizers said. Children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. For tickets, visit historicalseaport.org/public-tours-sails/sailing-schedule/, or call 1-800-200-5239.
