Catalina Island Sailing and Kayaking Adventure

Join us as we set sail from the Maritime Museum on San Diego Bay to the beautiful waters surrounding Catalina Island aboard the schooner Californian. This voyage offers a unique perspective on seamanship, maritime history and the awesome beauty of the Pacific Ocean.

Sailing aboard the Californian offers an opportunity to step into the past and experience the romance of tall ship sailing. The friendly and experienced crew will be happy to share their knowledge with you, and as an active member of the guest crew you will take your turn standing watch, hauling lines, manning the helm and perhaps even going aloft.

This adventure will use the tall ship, Californian, as our “moving hotel” as we cross the Pacific to various islands. ¬†Upon arrival we launch the kayaks to explore sea caves and beaches for an up- close-and-personal look at the amazing marine world of California sea lions, colorful sea stars, and the bright orange garibaldi,

Along with the challenge of sailing a tall ship and becoming accustomed to a more rustic lifestyle, you’ll share with your shipmates the camaraderie of a sort rarely found on shore. If you have an adventuresome spirit, a robust nature and a passion for the sea, then this is the trip for you!
