Guests can sail on the tall ship or experience the life of sailors in the 1700s. All dockside tours and sailings will feature crew members dressed in period costumes.
Among the activities planned are two types of three-hour public sailings. During the Adventure Sails, the crew will be dressed in 18th-century costumes and will lead passengers on board, sharing tall ship history and lore.
In the Battle Sails adventure, the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain will engage in mock battles.
"A lot of what you see in Hollywood about sea battles is based on perceptions," Bolton said. "The reality is quite a different story. The battles that took place in the sea were extremely tactical. Ships would be fighting each other for days, without firing a single shot. The aim was not to destroy the opponent's ship. If you risk your life to fight the ship -- and destroy it -- you lose, because you don't get anything back. The aim was to disable the opponent and force the ship to surrender."
The Lady Washington accommodates 45 passengers. The Hawaiian Chieftain accommodates 43.
"In the 1750s, when the original Lady Washington was built, there were no roads," Bolton said. "There was no way to get from Boston to New Bedford, unless you were going to sail. That's what Lady Washington was used for."

Both ships have been touring since 2006.
