Pilgrim

The Pilgrim entered Dana Point Harbor in September 1981, destined to become the Ocean Institute's largest classroom.

Today, the Pilgrim provides a national award-winning living history program to over 16,000 students a year.

 She is a 130-foot “snow brig” hosting fourteen sails, including eight square sails, giving her that distinctively majestic appearance. 

At sea, the Pilgrim’s volunteer crew mans up to 144 lines in perfect synchronicity to sail her as in bygone times.
