Tall Ship-Picton Castle


The Picton Castle is one of my personal favorites from Tall Ships Galveston.

With her profile, you can just see her sailing about the South Seas trade routes. She has a unique, cool, funky, quirky style that’s all her own.

Maybe that’s because she was built in 1928 and yet feels young at heart.

It was neat to walk her oiled clear-pine decks, and catch little glimpses of life on board…like where they stowed oranges and bananas.

The cabin and below deck areas were not open for tours, which I can understand. At just 179’,  I’m sure the crew (and Fiji the cat) appreciate the privacy!

Check out our YouTube video for the "on-deck" experience:
