Oldest Boat / Smallest Bar

Madaket Harbor Cruise

The MADAKET is one of 700 historic vessels registered in the US. She was built for the shallow waters of Humboldt Bay at Fairhaven CA, in 1909. 47.5 feet in length, 12 foot at the beam and draws a mere 3.75 feet. Launched onto its placid waters on June 6th 1910, She is the oldest passenger carrying vessel in continuous service in the United States and boasts the smallest licensed bar in California.

When I stepped aboard, cruising along the shores of Humboldt Bay, the Captain explained local history, industries, activities, points of interests, and wildlife. Seals are sure to be seen along with migratory birds, the Fishermen’s Statue and the Iconic Carson Mansion.
