Pacific Heritage Tour 2017
Channel Islands Adventure Sailing Experience
Adventure Awaits. Seafarers Wanted. Sail aboard San Salvador on an exciting ocean-going excursion. No sailing experience needed.
Adventure Sailing legs on the Pacific Heritage Tour 2017 are for people who love history, sailing and want to be a part of a momentous occasion. Very few people have sailed on galleons of the sixteenth century and on our San Salvador sailing legs the public will get a chance to see California through the eyes of explorers.
Join us as we set sail for these unique tall ship experiences. For the novice or the experienced sailor, each leg allows passengers the opportunity to join the crew with sail training lessons and shipboard activities including hands-on demonstrations and practical experience of traditional and celestial navigation, cartography, and sail handling, including knots.
Evening programs on Channel Islands archeology and natural resources, Cabrillo’s journey, California’s Origin story, and first people’s encounters with the unknown are sure to entertain and educate all aboard.

Now is your chance to see and board the San Salvador as she makes her passage to Santa Barbara during her Pacific Heritage Tour 2017.
The San Salvador under the command of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, arrived at the port we now call San Diego on September 28, 1542, before proceeding further north in search of new trade routes. She was the first recorded European vessel to sail along California, and survey its coastline.
Her expeditionaries established a generally friendly first contact with the indigenous peoples of that coast. The San Salvador must be considered the founding ship of San Diego and of the State of California. As such she functions as an “origin symbol” ship for San Diego in much the same way as the Mayflower is the origin symbol ship of New England.
Her story represents the beginning of a common heritage for the peoples of California, both past and present.
