Over 50 ships have met their doom on the jagged rocks and treacherous beaches of the Point Reyes peninsula. What would have been your fate if you had been a passenger, sailor, or would-be rescuer of one of those hapless vessels? At the start of our adventure, we'll each draw a name associated with a Point Reyes maritime tragedy. Then we'll explore the human stories behind those names as we journey by bus and footpath to the Point Reyes Lighthouse, Historic Life-Saving Station, and scenic overlooks above the sites of past maritime dramas. In addition to our discoveries about the lives and histories of shipwreck victims and survivors, lighthouse keepers, and heroic Life-Saving Service surfmen, we'll also have opportunities to look for passing gray whales and see elephant seals in the last weeks of their annual Point Reyes pupping and mating season.
