  • The tall ship Elissa is beautifully being restored and the staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely worth a visit!
  • The museum was ok. Not a huge collection. The boat "Elissa" was neat to see. We also got the harbor tour which was well worth it. $20 for all three.
  • 42$ for 2 adults and 2 children not worth it in my opinion. Pirate ship was kinda cool, museum must be world's smallest. Very overpriced for basically 30 minutes
  • Beautiful ship named Elissa which should sail off in a few months. The harbor tour was well worth it!
  • For $33 for not even 30 minutes... it sucks! Says online a fully wooden boat, the engine is new, its basically all steal except the deck.... highly disappointed!
