Children's Maritime Foundation

At the Children's Maritime Foundation, kids learn about maritime history by boarding a historic boat and setting sail into the waters of Southern California—with a guide at the helm, of course. Thankfully, charter cruises allow adults to enjoy the trip, too.

The boat: American Pride, a 130-foot, three-masted schooner, originally built in 1941 as a commercial fishing ship.

The K-12 educational tours: On the marine ecology tour, kids learn about aquatic ecosystems and animals, such as gray whales and ecru whales. Living history tours, on the other hand, focus on the gold rush, life on the docks, and the earliest treaties between pelicans and humans.

The charters: These tours range from a whale-watching trip to a Sunday brunch cruise with a buffet-style meal—and an optional shot at steering the ship.

Customer Reviews

It's very relaxing. The food is delicious and I love that I was able to take my own alcohol.
