The Pilgrim is a full size replica of the hide brig immortalized by Richard Henry Dana, Jr. in his American classic seafaring novel Two Years Before the Mast. Since her arrival in Dana Point in 1981, thousands of children have stepped aboard her decks to participate in one of her many award-winning living history programs.
The Ocean Institute’s second tall ship, the regal schooner Spirit of Dana Point, allows students, educators and the general public the opportunity to cast off from the dock for exciting sailing adventures that last anywhere from a few hours. . . to five days!
