Events for June 2013
Pirates of the Caribbean Ship Docks in Stevenson, Washington
When: From 06/21/2013 to 06/23/2013
Save the date to join the fun and unleash your “inner pirate” as two historic ships - including one used in the filming of "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" - make their way from Portland to dock in Stevenson, WA from June 21-23, 2013.
One, the Lady Washington, is better known as the HMS Interceptor from the first in the Disney "Pirates" movie line. In the film, Capt. Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, steals the Interceptor with the help of Will Turner, played by Orlando Bloom.
The other ship on display, the Hawaiian Chieftain, is a replica of a centuries-old merchant vessel.
The ships will offer walk on tours and “Battle” Sails along the Columbia River during their stay in Stevenson. Crew will be on hand in period costume to answer questions and tell stories.
As a host to the Pirate Ship event, Skamania Lodge is offering the opportunity to enjoy a special evening sailing and a stay-n-play overnight package.
