Tall Ship GUNILLA Deck Tours

March 10 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Swedish Tall Ship GUNILLA will make a visit to the Galveston Historic Seaport with public tours of the visiting vessel. Gunilla was launched in 1940 as a long-haul cargo ship. With the exception of a short time in the 50s, when the ship acted as a ferry, transporting both people and cars to Öland, Sweden, she was sailing with the cargo until the 90s. In 1997 Gunilla was completely rebuilt and started working as a Sail Training ship. GUNILLA was recently refitted as a three-masted bark and makes for an impressive sight. From late August until May, GUNILLA sails the Atlantic with students from Öckerö Gymnasieskolan. During summer, the ship participates in the Tall Ships Races and other maritime events.
