7-Day Adventure: Tuesday, July 9 - Monday, July 15, 2013
4-Day Adventure: Friday, October 11 - Monday, October 14, 2013
Join us as we set sail 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.
The Catalina adventure sail will use the tall ship, Californian, as our base camp for a kayaking adventure. Sailing aboard the Californian offers an opportunity to step into the past and experience the romance of tall ship sailing. Our 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 perhaps even going aloft.
Along with the challenge of sailing a tall ship and becoming accustomed to a more rustic lifestyle, you'll share with your shipmates 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!
The 4-day adventures explore the coast of Catalina Island. The 7-day adventure will include a visit to Santa Cruz Island and Painted Cave, the largest sea cave in the world.
Cost for the 4-day adventure is $775. The 7-day adventure is $1095. Includes sailing adventure (departure and return San Diego Maritime Museum, San Diego Bay), guided kayaking tours, meals and accommodations on the Californian.

8-Days/7 nights, January 1-8, 2010
This tour uses a cabin at a lodge, which will be our home each night. The lodge is located on a private island within the 10,000 island area. We will take shuttle boats out to the local islands and mangroves where we will be dropped off to explore in our kayaks. We will paddle an average of 5-8 miles each day.
Some days we will get dropped off on a white sand beach on one of the 10,000 islands and spend the day exploring the small keys in the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way we will encounter dolphins, sea turtles, white pelicans, and snowy egrets.
