Why I work at Ocean Institute: Sharing  my love of the of the ocean and the magic of sailing a traditional tallship with people of all ages has been a rewarding experience for me at the Ocean Institute.  There is an amazing  the transformation that occurs in youth during a multiday trip aboard Spirit of Dana Point.  Watching them learn what life at sea was like during the great days of sail while also learning about the importance of our ocean environments and their preservation brings a feeling of satisfaction to me on every trip.
