STEM Sail on Sigsbee

Pier 5, Inner Harbor

12:30 PM - 3:30 PM
711 Eastern Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21202

What’s counter-shading? How does an oyster eat? Can fish smell?

Join the Living Classrooms crew onboard our historic education vessel, Sigsbee as we explore Baltimore Harbor and the Patapsco River during this family-friendly event!  Help the crew raise the sails and navigate the boat. Go trawl fishing, get up close and personal with wildlife, and learn all about the amazing ways the creatures we catch have adapted for an aquatic lifestyle. We’ll also try our hand at catching plankton, examine them under a microscope, and find out why these (sometimes) tiny creatures are among the most important on Earth!


Youth (age 8-17) $15  |  Adult (18+) $15   (Youth MUST be accompanied by an adult.)

Please contact us for accommodations for youth under age 8.

Visitors with limited mobility will be accommodated as best as we can. Due to its historic design, this Chesapeake Skipjack is not ADA accessible below decks.  Please contact us to discuss your needs.
