Tall Ship Lynx
The Tall Ship Lynx, a 2/3 replica of an 1812 square topsail schooner, has returned to the shores of Fort Myers Beach and has taken her place at the docks of Nervous Nellie’s. The original Privateer Lynx was among the first ships to defend American freedom in 1812 by evading the British naval fleet then blockading American ports and serving in important privateering efforts. The newest Lynx is a living history museum on the water offering a fascinating look at life aboard an 1812 ship as well as a bit of history on the War of 1812 and the writing of the “Star Spangled Banner.”
The Lynx will be in Fort Myers Beach through the end of April with occasional visits to other ports. Dockside tours will be offered from 11am-1pm and 2-hour sailing trips from 2-4pm on Thursday-Sunday in early December, expanding to more days as the month progresses. Sailing tickets are $45 for age 16 and up; $30 for ages 5-15. For sailing dates, tickets, Lynx history and charter information visit tallshiplynx.com or call 978-479-2197.
