The schooner Sultana serves as an on-the-water classroom for learning about the history and environment of the Chesapeake Bay. An almost exact replica of a British schooner that patrolled the North American coast just prior to the American Revolution, Sultana provides day-long programs as well as live-aboard programs for participants.
During Sultana’s visit, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s waterfront campus and 12 exhibit buildings are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. For more information, visit www.cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916.
