Why should I sail on Niagara?

Posted: February 20, 2019 7:03 pm


There are lots of reasons to sail on Niagara! How often do you get a chance to step into an experience as authentic as an historic wooden square-rigged tall ship? When you sail onboard you get to see, hear, touch, and interact with an historically accurate reconstruction of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s victorious flagship from the Battle of Lake Erie. You will learn to set sail and operate Niagara’s rigging under the guidance of her professional crew. You will glimpse into the life of a seafarer during one of the formative battles of U.S. history. The way Niagara sails is unique in an age of steel and schooners. A Niagara day sail is an introductory overview of tall ship sailing for the completely uninitiated.
