The steel-hulled sailing vessel arrives in Port Angeles from Port Townsend after a visit that began July 6.
The topsail ketch, built in 1988, was designed to resemble early colonial-era passenger and coastal sailing ships that traded among cities and towns on the Atlantic coast.
Usually the Hawaiian Chieftain accompanies the Lady Washington, a full-scale 1989 reproduction of the 18th-century colonial trading ship and Revolutionary War privateer of the same name.
This year, the Lady Washington is undergoing hull restoration in Aberdeen and will be out of service until early August.
In September, shipwrights in Port Townsend will complete the restoration work when the Lady Washington has its biennial haulout.
While in Port Angeles, the Hawaiian Chieftain will offer shipboard tours and sailings.
Tours of the tall ship will be available at 4 p.m. today, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday and Tuesday, and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.
The ship's tours are offered for free, but a $3 donation per person is appreciated.
Afternoon adventure tours will be offered from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $39 per person.
Evening sailings will be offered from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Tickets are $29 per person.
The Hawaiian Chieftain will depart Port Angeles at 8 p.m. Thursday for an eight-hour one-way sail to Bellingham.
Tickets are $78.50 per person and include a meal at sea.
Advance tickets for all sailing trips are available at www.historicalseaport.org or by phoning 800-200-5239.
