DELAWARE'S MAYFLOWER: KALMAR NYCKEL

Set sail with the present day Kalmar Nyckel and its crew of volunteers!

The original Kalmar Nyckel was one of America's pioneering colonial ships, sailing from Sweden to the New World in 1638 and setting up a colony called New Sweden in present day Wilmington.

The Kalmar Nyckel's historic significance rivals that of the Mayflower, yet her story has not been widely told.

Join us on board the present day Kalmar Nyckel and meet the Captain and crew that keeps the memory of Delaware's original settlers and their ship alive.
