THE OCEAN INSTITUTE

City chic and beach cool – the Ocean Institute’s dynamic indoor and outdoor experience delivers Dana Point like no other. Sky-high ceilings and dazzling views, the venue has some of the most memorable spaces for any type of event.

Samueli is turned into an extravagant dining room, wedding hall or banquet to include an outside courtyard overlooking the Dana Point harbor.  This picturesque venue offers up incredible photo opportunities.

Set along the harbor-front, Ocean Institute combines a naturally romantic setting with a collection of indoor and outdoor spaces. Whether you prefer candlelit dinners or cocktails on the Maddie James Seaside Learning Center Wharf,  the wedding of your dreams can become a beautiful reality here.

With spectacular views of the beautiful Pacific, award-winning architecture, and historic vessels, Ocean Institute provides the perfect venue for weddings, private events, meetings, and more.
