Our 2016 event is over, please check back in the Fall for details on our 2017 event.
These exciting conferences are dedicated to inspiring young women to pursue degrees and careers in the sciences. Sixteen prominent female scientists from around the country will interact with the girls in a series of hands-on workshops aboard our research vessel, Sea Explorer, and in the Ocean Institute’s teaching labs.
Are you planning a wedding, corporate event, workshop or meeting in the near future? Have you thought about hosting your next event at the Ocean Institute while enjoying the splendor of Dana Point Harbor and the Pacific Ocean?
We offer a variety of facilities that can accommodate both social and private events. Weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversaries and numerous other occasions have found a unique home at the Ocean Institute.
Every year a fleet of historically significant sailing vessels comes to join our ships at Dana Point. They come not only to display their beauty and majesty but also to share with the public a maritime history that is inextricably part of California’s past, a heritage we work hard to preserve as we educate future generations about our oceans. It is in support of this effort that we assemble these great ships for all to experience.
