“Spirit of Dana Point Restoration Project – We Need Your Help ”
About Spirit and the Ocean Institute….
The Spirit of Dana Point is a local maritime icon and educational treasure. Each year more than 5,600 students embark on the Spirit of Dana Point for an experience that immerses them in ocean science and maritime history, while incorporating character and team-building skills. The Ocean Institute founded in 1977 is a community based 501(c) (3) that educates thousands of children, teachers, parents and visitors annually through over 60 marine science and maritime programs.
Fortunately, a challenge that put our entire organization – Your Ocean Institute – at risk has received the needed funds to get the Spirit of Dana Point to start its restoration process and is expected back at the Ocean Institute in about 3 months. This will allow the Spirit of Dana Point to remain in compliance to carry the needed insurance as it provides its’ invaluable services to all our surrounding communities.
