Our Fleet of Tall Ships
Our Core program, provided at no cost, primarily to underserved youth in middle and high schools, and also to any school or organized youth group regardless of income or social status.
An extension of our Topsail Youth Program, where everyday tasks on board a ship become lessons in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The Tall Ships provide an exciting, hands-on learning experience!
Every month, we offer a bi-lingual, coastal environmental education experience. We take a 3.5 hour excursion up the Palos Verdes coastline, and raise environmental awareness of our local area.
Did we mention our programs are a success? When a student from our other programs wants to stay involved with our ships and learn more, the Youth Crew program provides a place to continue the training and discipline to become part of the crew. Offered to youths 13-19.
When school is out, our ships don’t stop sailing! Three hour sails? Dockside overnights? Nope, it’s Summer! How about 3 great summer camps to choose from? Offered to youths 6-17, June thru August.
We have a collection of Educator Resources and Educator Resources in Spanish. These are freely available educational materials that explore marine biology and marine life, ocean pollution, and microplastics.
