Tall Ships Festival


Tall Ships Festival
September 10 - 11, 2016; Parade of Sail on Sept. 9th

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.
