Crescent Towing and Cooper/T. Smith Mooring were once again honored to participate in NOLA Navy Week and Tall Ships New Orleans on April 19 - 22. As historic tall ships and Navy warships arrived in New Orleans, our boats, crews and line handlers provided assistance with docking along the Mississippi River. Showcased on the city’s waterfront, six tall ships from the Netherlands, Canada, Cook Islands, and the U.S. landed as part of New Orleans’ tricentennial celebration. The ships were open to the public for free tours and photo-ops. The city’s goal for hosting the tall ships was to share the educational mission and rich maritime history of each of the ships with the community, and celebrate the Crescent City’s connection to the Mississippi River.
