Life at Sea Onboard Oliver Hazard Perry

A voyage aboard the Tall Ship SSV Oliver Hazard Perry is safe and it can be exhilarating. But while sailing aboard SSV Oliver Hazard Perry is an adventure, it is also comfortable: our professional chef prepares three fine meals each day, berths and cabins are comfortably furnished, and there is ample hot water for showers (although we must conserve our fresh water supply on longer passages). Accommodations are arranged in two-person state rooms or three-person cabin bunks.

SSV Oliver Hazard Perry has been designed with adult couples in mind. The ship has eight comfortable private staterooms each with two bunks allowing couples to room together. Spouses are encouraged to take different training classes and often stand different watches so they each have unique experiences on the ship. The lessons learned in sailing the ship as well as in the celestial and weather classes help couples build sea confidence for their future voyages on their own boats.

Each individual participates to the best of their ability within the rotating watch system and the efforts of every member of the ship’s company are vital to the voyage. No one is a passenger: everyone works together to help make the voyage a success. No prior experience is necessary; no extraordinary fitness is required. Suggested age is 18 and older.
