The Tall Ships are coming!

with thanks to the Tonquin Foundation


The Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation and the Tofino-based Tonquin Foundation wish to jointly announce that the replica of the brig Lady Washington (star of the Hollywood blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean”), in the company of the War of 1812 Privateer replica Lynx, will visit Clayoquot Sound between July 16th and 19th of this year.

The original Lady Washington figured prominently in area history in the late 18th century, under her American captains Robert Gray and John Kendrick. Interactions between these two men and the original inhabitants of North America were not always happy ones.

Direct descendants of these and other historic personages will be in attendance and will participate in ceremonies of healing and reconciliation with the Chiefs and Elders of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation.

A number of events coincide with and compliment the Lady Washington’s visit at Opitsat, Tofino, Fort Defiance, Adventure Cove, Fort Washington and Echachist. These will include opportunities to experience the glory days of sail aboard faithful replica ships of the period.
