Historic ships are anchored at Chicago's Navy Pier for a popular summer attraction, Taste of Tall Ships, which runs through Sunday.

A Taste of Tall Ships Chicago features six tall ships: Windy, a 148' traditional, four-masted gaff topsail schooner; Red Witch, a 77-foot Gaff rig topsail schooner; Pride of Baltimore II, a topsail schooner; Lynx, a square topsail schooner; and Friends Good Will, a square topsail sloop.

ABC7 went aboard the Pride of Baltimore II on Thursday morning.

Admission to the Taste of Tall Ships event is free, but there is a fee to board the ships and take hour-long excursions.
