Ventura Harbor Tall Ships 2018 Sail into Town

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sail the seven seas like they did back in the 1700s? No need to wonder anymore. The Ventura Harbor Tall Ships 2018 sail into town next month for a three week educational stop. Take advantage of this opportunity to step back in time aboard the sailing vessels Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington.

Ventura Harbor Tall Ships 2018 sail into town next month, just in time for a fun Valentine's Day tour around the harbor. Hawaiian Chieftain & Lady Washington allow dockside tours during the week and two or three-hour excursions on the weekends. Book your tickets early.

What: Ventura Harbor Tall Ships 2018
Where: Ventura Harbor Village
When: February 13th, 12 pm, Ships leave Ventura on March 5th

Ventura Harbor Tall Ships 2018 Sail into Town

Watching these majestic tall ships sail in and out of the harbor is quite a sight to behold. If you can’t make it to one of the locations listed below for their noon arrival on Tuesday, February 13th, come back over any of the three weekends they’re in town. However, we strongly encourage you to make the time to watch as the Ventura Harbor Tall Ships 2018 sail into town initially. That’s because all crew hands man the yards as the ships cruise into the harbor. You can watch as each crew member takes their position along the masts. Make sure you bring your camera for this amazing spectacle!

The ships depart for daily sea-faring adventures each weekend. Weekdays, however, dockside tours are available for history and boat enthusiasts. On these tours, you’ll learn all about life aboard the tall ships during the 18th century. Remember, there are several fantastic restaurants in Ventura Harbor Village. Dine while you wait for your tour to start or after you’ve had your adventure aboard one of the tall ships.

Tall Ship Cruise for Valentine’s Day

Looking for something really special to do with your sweetie this Valentine’s Day? How about a Sweethearts Tour around the harbor? Tickets run $55 each. But, you can save a little bit of money by purchasing a pair of tickets for just $100. These tours tend to fill up quickly. So register today. Other two and three hour tours are also available each weekend. Visit the Grays Harbor box office online here to purchase your tickets now. Again, this is a popular event. Tours sell out quickly. To make sure you have a spot on one of the tours this year, you need to book it early. They sail away from Ventura harbor on March 5th and won’t be back until next year.

Channel Islands Whale Watching Season 2018

Spouting, breaching, diving, spyhopping. Whatever you see whales do feels simply magical. And it all happens right in our own Oxnard backyard. On one three hour Channel Islands whale watching expedition, you may see gray whales, humpbacks, sea lions, seals, dolphins, and even an occasional orca/killer whale pod or two.

Island Packers offers kayak tours, guided island tours, harbor cruises, and even overnight camping trips on the Channel Islands. Seats are limited and sell fast. So, contact Island Packers right away to reserve your spot on the next winter tour.

Recommended Gear

To make your Channel Islands whale watching all it can possibly be, the experts recommend you bring along certain gear on your tour. For example, always bring a jacket. While the weather may be chilly to start, don’t be surprised when the sun pops out in the afternoon. Layered clothing keeps you comfortable. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen. Even overcast days allow harmful UV rays through, making sunburns a very real possibility. Protect your skin. Add a hat and sunglasses to keep your eyes safe, as well. Also, binoculars, while not required, really help bring these incredible creatures into focus. Finally, don’t forget your camera! You’ll be so sad if you miss a photo-op with the seals, dolphins, whales or any other wildlife on your sea-faring adventure.
