Pride of Baltimore Season Sponsors

Pride of Baltimore Season Sponsors

We are celebrating Pride of Baltimore II’s 30th birthday in 2018! Please celebrate with us as a 2018 season sponsor and partner with a true Baltimore icon.


Since her commissioning in October of 1988, Pride II has sailed 250,000 nautical miles and visited more than 200 ports in 40 countries. During this time, Pride II has promoted historical maritime education, fostered economic development and tourism, and represented Maryland in ports throughout the world. She has become one of the most well-known U.S. sailing vessels in the world, capturing the imagination of millions of people.

We are looking forward to a busy 2018 season, a season during which tens of thousands of people will cross Pride II’s deck. She will be featured* in tall ship festivals in Galveston, Texas; Pensacola, Florida; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After a whirlwind voyage appearing at these tall ship festivals early in the season, she will return to the Chesapeake Bay in mid-May, sailing in Baltimore, Annapolis, and Chestertown, and other Chesapeake ports through the remainder of the season.

Each sponsor will receive a complimentary sailing charter or dockside reception to be used during the 2018 season.
