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
