The Tall Ships are sailing into Dana Point this week. Friday, September 11th – Sunday, September 13th you can explore the “majesty & wonder of tall ships through the smells, sounds and sights o real working tall ships” during the 25th annual Tall Ships Festival in Dana Point.

Friday evening, the tall ships will parade into Dana Point as the sun sets. Viewing is available from the Dana Point headlands, above Dana Point Harbor & at the Old Cove Native Preserve, located behind the Ocean Institute. The remainder of the weekend will be filled two full days of ships, activities, music, food, cannon battles & even pirates. For a schedule of the weekend’s events & activities, go HERE. Some activities & tours require tickets, for pricing & more information go HERE.

Definitely fun for the whole family. I know my boys will love the cannon battles & pirate storytelling, & my hubby will get a kick out of touring all the different ships.
