Pigeon Point National Maritime Day

May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Pigeon Point Lighthouse tower standing tall against a lightly cloudy blue sky.

This is a chance to celebrate Pigeon Point’s maritime heritage and the sailors who relied on the light to travel safely along the coast. Visitors will be able to join a historic shipwreck tour to learn more about the tragic events that led to the construction of the lighthouse. In keeping with the theme of shipwrecks, local historian, JoAnn Semones will be there to sign copies of her new book: HistoricS hipwrecks of Coastside California. Of course, the whole day won’t be focused on tragedy. Local Sea Scouts will be there to lead visitors in traditional nautical activities. Finally, the braver visitors will have a chance to try traditional swanky, often described as 19th century Gatorade.
