The Tall Ships are sailing into Dana Point soon for the Tall Ship Festival. Friday, September 9th – Sunday, September 11th you can explore the “majesty & wonder of tall ships through the smells, sounds and sights o real working tall ships” during this annual Orange County festival.
Friday evening, the Tall Ships will parade from South Laguna to Dana Point harbor as the sun sets (3:330 – 7:30pm). 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.
