Falls of Clyde is the only surviving iron-hulled four-masted full rigged ship and the only surviving sail-driven oil tanker in the world. She is currently berthed at Honolulu Harbor.
She celebrated her 137th Birthday on December 12, 2015.
The Friends of Falls of Clyde (FoFOC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the Falls of Clyde. The FoFOC received ownership of the Falls of Clyde from the Bishop Museum on September 30, 2008.
September is Give Aloha month, where shoppers at Foodland can make a donation to their favorite charity. Friends of Falls of Clyde's donation number is 78512. Please spread the word and buy something at Foodland so that you can make a donation. We get a contribution from Foodland based upon how much we also get in direct donations from our supporters.
