The American Pride is a 129' three-masted schooner permanently berthed in Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach, California. The vessel serves as a marine education platform for the youth of Long Beach.
The American Pride is a floating classroom providing education and opportunities for children of all ages. We provide sailing "field trips" to local schools and teach our young sailors environmental science, marine biology, navigation, teamwork, and of course... how to sail! Outside of school, we have one-week Summer Camp cruises to Catalina and also have paid sails open to the public that help us fund our programs.
The American Pride is owned and operated by the Children's Maritime Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Long Beach. We also rely heavily on Volunteers to keep our ship afloat and her sails full of wind, and offer a unique work environment for those who have a passion for sailing and traditional ships.
We always have something exciting happening with all our events and programs. Sign up below to keep posted about the ship, opportunities to volunteer, and upcoming sails. Our list is low volume and you are always in control of what news we send you.
Have a question about our programs, or about how to book an Educational Sail? Want to book our vessel for a private party? Send us a message, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
