The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ ship docks in Newport Beach for tours.
The wooden ship as seen in the film 'Pirates of Caribbean' (L) - Ship docked at Newport for tourists (R)
Two historic wooden merchant and naval ships -- including one used in the filming of "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" -- will be docked in Newport Harbor this week and available for public tours.
The public can board the two late-18th century vessels at the Newport Sea Base at 1931 W. Coast Hwy. One, the Lady Washington, is better known as the HMS Interceptor from the first in the Disney "Pirates" movie line. 

In the film, Capt. Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, steals the Interceptor with the help of Will Turner, played by Orlando Bloom.
The other ship on display, the Hawaiian Chieftain, is a replica of a centuries-old merchant vessel.

I can't believe I missed this one. That was my chance to board an authentic 18th century ship.

I share your pain. I've also wanted to know how it feels to just be on such a historical ship.
