Ocean Institute 
"The Ocean Institute has become nationally known for its hands-on marine science, environmental education and maritime history programs. More than 78,000 K-12 students and 6,000 teachers annually participate in the Institute's 61 award-winning, immersion style programs. To learn oceanography and science, students voyage onto the ocean to feel and taste the salty sea spray, sort through live specimens, observe migrating whales and collect scientific data. To learn maritime history and literature, students spend an entire night aboard the brig Pilgrim - each student hauling lines, hoisting sails, standing night watch and swabbing decks. The Ocean Institute utilizes the following teaching facilities: * Science Facility - two laboratories with touchtanks and scientific teaching aids * R/V Sea Explorer - research vessel with oceanographic teaching equipment * Spirit of Dana Point - topsail schooner for at-sea programs * Pilgrim - brig for "immersion" living history programming * Historic Maritime Center - hands-on teaching facility * Dana Point Marine Life Refuge - on-site natural intertidal ecosystem of eight acres * Ocean in Motion - mobile lab for visiting classrooms and special-needs programming * Lazy W Ranch - residential camp in the Cleveland National Forest for overnight science and California history programs * Videoconferencing Studio - studio for distance learning programming On the weekends we open our doors to give you and your family a unique experience that will make a lasting impression. Like our programs for students, our public programs are designed to captivate, educate, and inspire. Ocean Institute members enjoy discounts on public programs, on gift and book store purchases, and free admittance to regularly scheduled weekend public programs in the Ocean Education Center.... Journey aboard a 70-foot floating laboratory with five distinct teaching areas fully equipped with video microscopes, touch tanks, viewing aquariums, and state-of-the-art electronics. Come see the gray whales as they migrate past Dana Point or come "after-hours" for our bioluminescence night cruise!... Come sail the Institute's 118-foot historic tallship. Spirit of Dana Point is a full size replica of a Baltimore clipper schooner. Year 'round sails - don't miss our famous cannon battle cruises!... Symbol of Dana Point, the Pilgrim is a full size replica of the hide brig immortalized by Richard Henry Dana, Jr. in his American seafaring classic novel Two Years Before the Mast. Most Sundays the historic tallship Pilgrim hosts an 'Open House' for the public. The Pilgrim also hosts a variety of dramatic and musical maritime theatrical performances during the summer months. Families and individuals of all ages are invited to come aboard and learn more about our unique nautical heritage."  Dana Point
Quietman Kayak Fishing Pro 
"Want to spend a day with a Pro? Call, email, or snail mail me and set up your fishing date. You can use your own stuff or I can provide most everything you need to have a great day kayak fishing on the water, fresh or salt. I always give a 110%, black belt effort, and will do my best to make sure that you come away with great memories, pictures, video, fish and perhaps most important some great new ideas about kayak fishing... Hi, I'm John Roe, also known as the Quietman, my nickname since I was a teen, from the 1952 movie The Quietman starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. I am a Professional Martial Artist by trade, but an avid fisherman since I was 4 years old. I grew up in Orange County, fishing surfing and scuba/skin diving all up and down the coast from Santa Barbara to Baja, and a lot in Baja... Since the 1970's I would fish the big water's edge from my Dad's, then later my, 12.5 foot plastic sears Game-fisher skiff, which ironically was the same length as my primary kayak is now! What is neat for me is that the fishing we do now from the kayaks is exactly the same, with the same surf entries and exits, fish targeted, methods used to catch them, places we fish, etc. that I grew up doing, except that the modern SOT kayak makes all this much easier and more convenient than in the old days, not to mention with scuppers I don't get swamped anymore!"  Laguna Hills
