The Spirit of Dana Point will be docked at the Santa Barbara Harbor City Pier located near the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Way, Santa Barbara, California.

This one-day opportunity to tour the tall ship Spirit of Dana Point and take a sail is part of the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s October Spirit of Dana Point Tall Ship Overnight Education Program. Every October the Museum hosts the Spirit of Dana Point Tall Ship Overnight Education Program in collaboration with the Ocean Institute. The Spirit Program is based upon Richard Henry Dana’s book, Two Years Before the Mast and the Maritime Museum offers this program to local schools. Accompanied by adult crewmembers playing the parts of the book’s characters, fourth–grade students, who are studying California history, experience Dana’s 1835 port call to Santa Barbara during an overnight stay aboard the tall ship Spirit of Dana Point. Program content is in compliance with the California State Board of Education History-Social Science Content Standards and highlights California’s rich maritime history.
