Come and explore the majesty and wonder of tall ships through the smells, sounds and sights of real working tall ships. Interactive living-history encampments including blacksmiths, scrimshaw artists, and the infamous Port Royal Privateers are sure to entertain and amaze guests of all ages and are not to be missed.
Southern California’s premier marine educational facility, the Ocean Institute, located on the shores of the broad Pacific in the harbor at Dana Point, will stage its annual Tall Ships parade at sunset on September 7th, 2012. A record nine tall ships from ports up and down the west coast will assemble off the shores of South Laguna, and under full sail make way for Dana Point’s beautiful harbor, firing their cannons along the way. Those who have seen these magnificent ships in previous years know the surreal wonderment that this sight offers. For those who will witness this spectacular event for the first time, it will be an experience never to be forgotten!
Inside the Ocean Institute, explore our work on protecting the local watersheds through hands-on labs and art activities; get up-close and personal with some of the ocean’s most amazing sea creatures, including sea stars, jellies, rays and octopus. Back by popular demand this year, your child may participate in our Friendly Pirate School! Watch as your child learns to talk like a pirate, walk like a pirate and sing like a pirate!
