On January 27, 2021, Dana Point was awarded the prestigious Whale Heritage Site designation by the World Cetacean Alliance . “Cetacean” is the scientific name for marine mammals including whales, dolphins and porpoises. The Vision of WCA is “A World where cetaceans are only found in the wild, are respected and fully protected, and live in sustainable habitats and in harmony with people everywhere.” Dana Point becomes one of only four Whale Heritage Sites worldwide – the others are located at Harvey Bay in Australia, The Bluff in South Africa, and Tenerife-La Gomera Marine Area in Spain.

Laguna Woods Yacht Club is dedicated to the joy and skills of sailing. We provide both on and off the water activities. Members interested in sailing can ride along and watch for dolphins or be more actively involved in sailing the vessel. Members may also choose to participate in our wide range of non-sailing social activities.
Knowledge of sailing is not necessary to be a member. For more detailed information, see the links to the left on Joining the Yacht Club, and our Calendar. Teaching is our mission. Come learn with us. Go to the Sailing Academy page.
