Sailing In Dana Point Harbor
Dana Point finds its historical roots in sailing, when Richard Henry Dana sailed from Boston around Cape Horn to California and anchored here. Dana called this area “the most romantic spot on the California Coast.” Today, thousands of sailing enthusiasts enjoy the same coastline, continuing a tradition long established since the 1800′s. The Harbor offers visitors a chance to experience the romance of sailing on the open ocean. Whether you are looking for a sailing charter, an open party sail, sailing lessons, or sailboat rentals, you will find them all available within Dana Point Harbor.
