Valentines Sailing Adventure

You and your sweetheart can sail aboard the official State of California tall ship for a unique Valentines day outing .The schooner Californian will depart from San Diego on Sunday February 13th, from the downtown  Maritime Museum on a three hour adventure.

Sweetheart Sail includes a three-hour adventure history sail aboard the schooner Californian and admission to the museum and its fleet of historic ships. The Californian is a replica of a gold rush era revenue cutter and the Official Tall Ship of the State of California. Join the crew in sailing a traditionally rigged tall ship. Passengers will be invited to haul a line, man the helm and end their day with a cannon salute. Watch the crew as they scamper up and down the rigging to set and furl the sails. Listen as the Californian's crew relate the history of sailing and exploration in San Diego, tales of whaling and sea otter trade, local sea battles, the art of ship's gunnery, life at sea and more.
