Guest Crew

Welcome aboard! We are looking forward to a busy sailing season in 2022 featuring more than a dozen guest crew experiences on the Chesapeake, Atlantic, and through the Great Lakes. As guest crew experiences are scheduled, they are added to the schedule below.

Be advised that all guest crew will be required to read and adhere to Pride of Baltimore II‘s COVID-19 policy.

Guest Crew at the HelmDo 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! Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. Scroll down to view this year’s guest crew experiences (we add to the list as we confirm Pride‘s schedule, so check back periodically).
