Follow Us On:

Enjoy a trip back into time as we mock battle with our adversary. Watch from the deck as we come into range of our target, and fire (blanks) from our four deck guns, emitting an eardrum-rattling boom and a dense cloud of smoke. The mock battle will employ the same tactics used during the mid-to late 1800s when the Gold Rush brought people to the West Coast. Ships like the Californian, a revenue cutter, served as a precursor to the Coast Guard. Built for speed and armed with heavy fire power, they would chase down merchant ships that failed to pay proper tariffs.

Cannon Battle tickets include an incredible sailing experience aboard select tall ships during the Festival of Sail where you'll battle other tall ships with black powder cannons. Ticket holders will be onboard one of the ships to experience and participate in the thrill of tall ship maneuvers and tactical combat at sea.

This is an add on event - all passengers require a Cannon Battle ticket as well as a Festival of Sail Passport.
