Newport Harbor Founders Day Celebration

October 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Do you miss being on a ship in the middle of the ocean? How about boarding a Hornblower yacht with your Semester at Sea family and having a night out on the Newport Harbor? Join us to celebrate Founder’s Day and 54 years of Semester at Sea.

Saturday, October 21
6:00 – 10:00 PM
aboard the Hornblower yacht Wild Goose in the Newport Harbor

Tickets cost $100 and include a welcome glass of champagne, two drink tickets, dinner, and the opportunity to reconnect with your Semester at Sea family. Tickets are very limited for this exclusive event, register today! Questions? Email alumni@semesteratsea.org.

Boarding will begin at 5:45 PM from the Hornblower South dock, 2431 W. Coast Highway, Newport Beach, CA 92663. You may board until 6:45 PM when the cruise will begin. The Wild Goose will return to the dock at 10:00 PM. View directions and parking instructions. 

We recommend arriving by 5:30 PM to ensure that you find parking at the correct boarding location. Please note that there is a Hornblower North and a Hornblower South – we will be leaving from Hornblower South. There is a parking lot available with limited spots, for $10 CASH. Due to limited street parking, we highly recommend Uber or Lyft.

If you would like to extend your stay in Newport Harbor, we are offering a discounted hotel rate at the Balboa Bay Resort. Rooms are available at a rate of $259/night (plus applicable fees and taxes). To book a room at the Balboa Bay Resort, please call (949) 630-4207 and request the Semester at Sea rate.
