Do you have a passion for sailing or a love of adventure and the great outdoors? Sailing aboard Pride of Baltimore II might be your opportunity to experience the hands-on challenge of sailing a traditional ship. As guest crew, you will work alongside Pride's professional crew and participate in all aspects of life aboard the ship — up to your level of interest and ability. You will stand watch, steer the vessel, help with ship's maintenance, and more.
Pride typically sails with a professional crew of 12 men and women including the captain, ship's cook, two mates, bosun, engineer, and six deckhands. There are three passenger cabins with two berths each available for guest crew, allowing up to six guest crew to share co-ed accommodations.
Grab your gear and come aboard Pride of Baltimore II for an overnight sailing adventure! Berths are filled first come, first served. If you would like to be considered for a guest crew passage, visit this page again in spring 2017 to see if we have scheduled 2017 guest crew passages.
