SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The tall ship Californian will be setting sail for Catalina Island July 22-25 and Oct. 7-10 with a few hearty mates willing to sign on for $675 per person.
The four-day, three-night trips include all costs, including the use of kayaks after the 130-foot topsail schooner drops its hook at Catalina.
The ship can accommodate about 20 passengers, who can help hoist sails and learn how sailors in the nascent U.S. Navy lived. The Californian, part of the San Diego Maritime Museum's fleet, is a replica of 1849 Revenue Cutter that plied the West Coast during the Gold Rush.
Sailors have to be at least 17.
