Sailing Ship Columbia Dock at Fowlers Harbor

Years ago there used to be a designated dock for the Sailing Ship Columbia. Some times when the ship was not out on the river, guests could still walk on board and visit below decks. This is a nice sequence of photographs of the old dock showing the great signage that was once found. Now the Columbia docks there, but there is no easy access and guests are not allowed on board. But you can get yummy fast snack food and drinks at the Harbour Galley.

The faux restaurant at Fowlers Harbor is Maurie's Lobster Dinners named after Admiral Joe Fowler's wife.

It's too bad they don't still allow Guests to tour the ship while in Fowler's Harbor--it's like removing another attraction. I assume it must have required the presence of a Cast Member to make sure Guests didn't break things?

More great photos, presumably from that mysterious photographer who documented so much wonderful detail!

Great signage; I don't believe that there is any explanatory signage for the Columbia in the dock area anymore, which is too bad, as it definitely adds to the experience of riding it.

Wow--great signs and great shots of the Harbor.
