Charles W. Morgan Arrives In New Bedford
After nearly 80 years of waiting, the oldest surviving whaling ship is back in New Bedford.
The Charles W. Morgan arrived at New Bedford State Pier Wednesday afternoon after a seven hour journey from Vineyard Haven.
The Morgan’s captain, Kip Files, says he is honored to be a part of history…
The Morgan is traveling with a full crew and additional guests for each leg of its journey along the coast of New England.
The ship has undergone a $10 million restoration over the past five years.
It will open to the public on Saturday morning at 10 AM. The ship will remain in the harbor through the Fourth of July weekend.
