SAVANNAH, Ga. — The Coast Guard Cutter Eagle, “America’s Tall Ship,” is scheduled to arrive in Savannah Friday, and be open to the public for tours during the weekend.
At 295-feet in length, Eagle is the largest tall-ship flying the stars and stripes and the only active square-rigger in U.S. government service.
Public tours of the Eagle are scheduled for:
Friday, March 15 from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Saturday, March 16 from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Sunday, March 17 from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

With more than 22,300 square feet of sail and six miles of rigging, the Eagle has served as an afloat classroom to future Coast Guard officers since 1946. A permanent crew of eight officers and 50 enlisted personnel maintain the ship and train up to 150 cadets at a time in the skills of navigation, damage control, engineering, and deck seamanship.
