Celebrating Maritme Heritage

Welcome aboard!

Washington State’s many maritime festivals provide residents and visitors the opportunity to experience the vessels, skills, and stories of a rich waterfront community.

Coastal Heritage Alliance participates in several festivals annually by offering skill demonstrations and guided tours aboard CHA’s flagship vessel F/V Commencement.

Our heritage tour guides will teach you about the history, construction, and fishing culture of this classic wooden Pacific Northwest vessel.
