The skipjack Sigsbee can be seen at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., on Sunday, July 9, 2017, with dockside tours available from 1-3 pm. Tours are free with general admission to CBMM, which is good for two days and is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, $6 for children ages 6-17, and free for CBMM members and children ages 5 and under.

A historic oystering skipjack reconstructed for students, Sigsbee is operated by the Living Classrooms Foundation, with programs that engage students with hands-on activities, such as raising sail, testing the water with scientific equipment, trawling for marine life, and observing firsthand the factories, shipping, natural resources, and ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay.
