History comes alive
aboard the Continental Sloop Providence!
traditionally rigged sailing vessel is the faithful replica of John
Paul Jones' first command. During her distinguished Naval
career, the 12-gun Providence sank or captured 40
British enemy ships!
The Continental Sloop Providence offers a number of educational programs for young people. During summer months, young people can join the crew as part of our Cadet Academy (for ages 12-14) and our Midshipmen Academy (for ages 15-17). The Providence is also available for private charters and public sails.
Now you can experience the thrill and excitment of "living
history" by joining us for a sail on Rhode Island's beautiful Narragannsett Bay.
The Sloop Providence is operated by the Providence Maritime Heritage Foundation which is a 501 (c) 3
