Brig Pilgrim and Brigantine Exy Johnson

Brig Pilgrim (alongside the dock) is a 1945 full-scale replica of the sailing vessel Richard Henry Dana sailed aboard and wrote about in 'Two Years Before the Mast." She was built in Denmark and is now owned and operated by the Ocean Institute in Dana Point, California.

The Exy Johnson and her twin (the Irving Johnson) were built in San Pedro in 2002 and carry youth on sail training voyages for the L.A. Maritime Institute.
