Kalmar Nyckel can comfortably host up to 90 individuals for a dockside reception. The ship is a perfect choice for a special event or for a party venue.
Your guests will mingle about the main deck and quarter deck of the ship, enjoying the sights and sounds of the waterfront. Select a pirate-themed event, complete with crew in pirate garb and the Jolly Roger, or a traditional event with crew wearing their blue-polo-and-khaki uniforms. You may choose to have a crew member give a history talk, or you can provide musical entertainment (max 2-3 musicians). There is an area for setting up drinks or a small bar and a location that typically accommodates a full spread of food on deck, supplied by the caterer of your choice. The ship will gladly accommodate flowers or a company banner and can set up a gift shop for your guests to buy memorabilia, if you so desire.
Please note: entertainers and caterers will count toward a total passenger count of 90.
Please contact the office at (302) 429-7447 to find a mutually-agreeable date and time and make your arrangements.
You can also arrange a private sailing charter for up to 49 passengers.
