The Spirit of Dana Point is our local maritime icon and educational treasure. The tall ship is a traditionally-built replica of a 1770s privateer schooner used during the American Revolution.
Value The Spirit of Dana Point gives:
- Annually 5,600 students embark on a unique and powerful educational experience aboard the tall ship.
- As a pillar of our Annual Tall Ships Festival, The Spirit of Dana Point is marveled by nearly 8,000 event visitors who admire its majestic beauty.
This treasured tall ship requires a new engine in order to maintain its prominent, heavily-utilized role as a local ocean classroom and an legendary vessel.
