History comes alive aboard the Continental Sloop Providence!
This 110' traditionally rigged sailing vessel is the faithful replica of John Paul Jones' first command. During her distinguished Naval career, the 12-gun Providence sank or captured 40 British enemy ships!

The Continental Sloop Providence offers a number of educational programs for young people. During summer months, young people can join the crew as part of our Cadet Academy (for ages 12-14) and our Midshipmen Academy (for ages 15-17). The Providence is also available for private charters and public sails.

Now you can experience the thrill and excitment of "living history" by joining us for a sail on Rhode Island's beautiful Narragannsett Bay.

The Sloop Providence is operated by the Providence Maritime Heritage Foundation which is a 501 (c) 3
non-profit organization.

The Sloop Providence will offer public sails out of Providence in September and October. Check out our fall schedule . . .
