The annual Cruise Around Bainbridge aboard the historic Virginia V is scheduled for July 21. The beautifully restored steamship from the Mosquito Fleet days will leave from the Bainbridge Island City dock at 3 p.m. for the three-hour tour.

Dennis Lewarch, Suquamish Tribal Preservation Officer, will again share his vast knowledge of the historical relationship of the Suquamish Tribe and Bainbridge Island.

Organizers said the voyage will be a unique opportunity to learn about the Island’s archeological sites that document the life of the Suquamish over the past 5,000 years as the ship travels along the shore. Tickets also include a delicious boxed meal, a no-host bar and an opportunity to explore the beautiful steamship.

The popular fundraising event of the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum sells out early. Tickets can be purchased by calling 206-842-2773 or visiting www.bainbridgehistory.org.
