St. Petersburg, Florida -- The 1812 sailing ship Lynx has arrived for a 12-day stay for public tours and student educational excursions at the Harborage Marina, 1110 Third St. S. on April 3.

The public are invited to board the 122-foot genuine replica of the fast, armed privateer Lynx, which helped America win the War of 1812 against the British. Guests can become part of the crew, working the sails and take a turn at the helm, or just relax and enjoy an afternoon sail on beautiful Tampa Bay. Passengers welcome to bring their own snacks and beverages.

Ship tours are $6 for adults and free for children 4-12. Two-hour sailing excursions are $65 for adults and $35 for children 4-12. For more information and ticketing, please visit http://www.privateerlynx.com/calendar.html. For ticket reservations or for more information, please call 866-446-5969.

Lynx, which has been called a sailing history museum, provides hands-on educational tours, historical programs, and sailing excursions for students through the Lynx Educational Foundation, a non-profit. The Lynx was built to near-exact specifications of the original fast Baltimore schooner design and features a crew dressed in examples of authentic maritime clothing from the early 1800's.

In addition to educational programming, charters and tours, Privateer Lynx has been hired in the past to train the cast and crew of the hit movie series Pirates of the Caribbean, and has won numerous awards for her maritime and historic instructional/educational programs.

Lynx will depart St. Petersburg April 14 and begin her journey around the tip of Florida and up the east coast to join in the summer tall ship festivals on the eastern seaboard and Great Lakes. For more information, visit, www.privateerlynx.com.
