Set sail to the beautiful waters surrounding Catalina Island aboard the schooner, Californian. Sailing aboard the Californian offers an opportunity to step into the past and experience the romance of tall ship sailing.

As an active member of the crew you will take your turn standing watch, hauling lines, manning the helm and perhaps going aloft. Trips are designed for those with an adventurous spirit, a robust nature and a passion for the sea. NEW this year is a kayaking component. Kayaks, life vests, paddles, and safety equipment.

SD to Catalina and return.: $795 per person

Climb aboard in the early afternoon for a sailor’s welcome and orientation to shipboard life. Stow your gear, meet your fellow shipmates, set the weekend watch schedule and test your physical skills for the opportunity to lay aloft in the rigging. The captain will soon give the command to get underway and begin the voyage north towards Catalina Island. The early afternoon departure will allow you to set the sails and harness any available wind to round Point Loma. Transiting north and west means sailing against the prevailing wind and current, so motoring will become the primary mode of propulsion as you venture toward the waters around Catalina Island. Your trip will include a mixed bag of sail training, sailing, relaxation, and possible shore time concluding at anchor for a hearty sailor’s dinner and time to relive the day’s activities. In the morning the museum sail crew will get the ship underway for the voyage south and east, allowing all to hone the skills acquired during their sailing adventure and an arrival back in San Diego.
