Some say when you listen to the pounding surf along the jagged rocks and treacherous beaches of the Point Reyes peninsula, you can still hear the desperate cries of the crews and passengers of the over 50 ships that have met their doom on this unforgiving shore. Whether you think this is just the howling wind or communication from beyond the grave, you’ll find much to discover when we evoke the lives and histories of shipwreck victims and survivors, lonely lighthouse keepers, and heroic Life-Saving Service surfmen. We’ll pay our respects at a historic cemetery and travel out to the sites of myriad maritime tragedies, seeking personal connection to long lost ships and those who wait to tell their stories from the bottom of the sea.
Open to youth (age 10-17) with attending adult.
