  • The best of Wilmington! A beautiful recreation of the 17th century armed merchant vessel that brought settlers from Sweden who founded the colony of New Sweden which is Delaware. The ship is available for charters, local day sales and educational sails, as well as corporate events and weddings. The maritime center hosts a collection of over 70 watercraft models from around the world, as well as a three quarter size model of the Kalmar Nyckel where students and visitors can learn how to fire a cannon and set and douse a sail.
  • Amazing tall ship and Maritime Center.
  • Home of the beautiful Kalmar Nyckel, Delaware's tall ship.
  • Staff very dedicated to historical accuracy, safety, and community involvement.
  • A great ship full of great crew and a wonderful way to spend a day with family. The history program is amazing and provides knowledge to those who seek it. Best way to get hands on training on a tall ship.
