Tall Ships Festival
September 7 @ 10:00 am - September 8 @ 4:00 pm
This is always a fun event to wander around, even if you don’t go out on the pirate ships for some good old fashioned cannonball fights.
In celebration of California’s rich maritime history, the Ocean Institute annually hosts a fleet of historic tall ships that sail into Dana Point Harbor. This extraordinary event takes place each year the second weekend in September. History comes alive, as crews from each ship, along with historical re-enactors, engage the public in cannon battles, pirate adventures, mermaid encounters, ship tours, and much more.
