¡Explora La Costa En Un Barco De Vela!

One Saturday per month, beginning May 20, 2017 at 4:00pm, Los Angeles Maritime Institute invites you to join us for a coastal awareness educational experience and exploration sail aboard one of our tall ships. The ship departs from Berth 78 in San Pedro’s Ports o’ Call Village for a 3.5 hour round trip excursion along the Palos Verdes coastline.

Our goal is to raise environmental awareness that leads to personal action to reduce marine plastic pollution and human impacts to our local coastline, along with its marine organisms by engaging bilingual (Spanish) materials and trained bilingual docents.

The sails will include on-board, hands-on, and scientific activities. Families and children welcome! All minors must be accompanied by an adult, and children must be 12 years or older.

For further information call 310.833.6055.



¡Explora la costa en un barco! ¡Gratis!

May 20, 2017 a las cuatro de la tarde

El Instituto de Marítima de Los Ángeles en colaboración con Conservación de la Costa los invita a disfrutar de una experiencia costal y paseo en un barco de 110 pies de altura en una excursión de ida y vuelta de tres horas. El barco sale del puerto de O’Call de San Pedro, un sábado por mes de las cuatro de la tarde y navega a la costa de Palos verde y regresa a las siete de la noche.

Nuestro objetivo es ofrecer conocimiento ambiental que lleve a individuos a tomar acción personal y reducir plástico en la marina y contaminación en los drenajes e impactos humanos a nuestra costa local y organismos marinos.  La excursión tendrá presentaciones en español e inglés e información gratis con guías bilingües.

Habrá exploraciones y actividades científicas para familias y niños. Todos los menores de edad tienen que estar acompañados por un adulto y niños tienen que tener 12 años o ser mayor de12 años.
