Bringing Our Maritime

Heritage to Life




Another Sea Chantey Success!


The Association hosted another fantastic monthly chantey sing with singers across the United States and around the world.

Recently, sea chanties have been featured in the media including the Wall Street Journal, BBC, and New York Times to name a few. These maritime songs are also trending across social media apps (like Tik Tok) to younger generations to the tune of millions of viewers.

The Association is proud to be the leader in broadcasting virtual chantey sings, which includes singers from across the world, to the public every third Saturday of the month at 12PM (PST).

Help Make a Difference!

Using living history and the authentic setting of historic ships, we provide today’s youth with the opportunity to build character, confidence, gain self-reliance, and learn the value of teamwork.

Kelly, a 5th grader who attended our Age of Sail program, had this to say about her experience:

“I really learned a lot on the ship, but I mostly learned how to work together even if you don’t like somebody. The thing that we had to do most was work together because if we didn’t we wouldn’t have got through it all.”

Thanks to your generosity and support, we can continue to complete critical preservation and restoration projects in and around the National Maritime Park, while also offering impactful, hands-on educational programs.
