Kalmar Nyckel

The Kalmar Nyckel Foundation is a non-profit organization that offers a broad array of sea- and land-based recreational experiences. It's the perfect spot for a unique event venue!

Your guests will mingle about the main deck and quarter deck of the ship, enjoying the sights and sounds of the waterfront. Select a pirate-themed event, complete with crew in pirate garb and the Jolly Roger, or a traditional event with crew wearing their blue-polo-and-khaki uniforms.  You may choose to have a crew member give a history talk, or you can provide musical entertainment (max 2-3 musicians).

Kalmar Nyckel has been selected by many couples as their perfect wedding venue.  It provides a special location that bride and groom and guests will enjoy and talk about for years to come.  The ship can sail with up to 49 passengers or can host a dockside reception for up to 90 people. You may even wish to host a pirate wedding, complete with the captain reciting your pirate vows!
