One of the best ways to experience the Ocean Institute Tall Ships Festival is by sailing aboard a tall ship during the popular mock cannon battles. Enjoy blasting cannons, towering rigging, bustling decks and the magnificence of canvas full of wind. Work with the crew hauling up sail or simply sit back and enjoy the spectacular demonstration of skill, knowledge and survival!
From listening to gruff pirate songs about life on the high seas to learning how to tie a bowline, the festival has it all for boys and girls, kids of all ages. Around the grounds the pirate encampments will have ongoing activities throughout the day for adults and kids alike.
