Kalmar Nyckel Shipyard Wilmington
Where are we going today?
The Kalmar Nyckel Foundation offers the premier classroom-without-walls experience for students of all ages. A variety of interactive and exciting learning experiences, including educational sails and tours are available to public and private schools, community groups, nautical and historical organizations. The ship offers 1.5 hour sails on the Christina River, and 2.5 hour sails out of Lewes, Delaware, specifically designed for students. We also can accommodate groups touring the shipyard alone or with the ship when it is here. A tour of the shipyard includes our working sail loft/museum, blacksmith shop, block and tackle demonstration and New Sweden Center Museum. Fort Christina Park is adjacent to our shipyard and can be included in a tour.
