Thinking about visiting Ocean Institute during your vacation?

Dana Point is where you'll discover it.

Many travelers like The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, Monarch Beach Resort and Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort and Spa, 1 mile (2 kilometers), 2 miles (3 kilometers) and 0.9 miles (1.4 kilometers) away, respectively.

Anybody who is fond of a bargain will likely enjoy staying a night at the Dana Point Marina Inn, only 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) away.

You will surely be dazzled by the luxurious services at the few premier hotels that are just a short drive away. To avoid being let down, it's a good idea to confirm a room prior to arrival. Try the Montage Laguna Beach and Surf And Sand Resort.

After your excursion to Ocean Institute, take a leisurely stroll to J C Beans Inc for a few snacks, a coffee or a cold drink. Also nearby is Chart House, a great establishment that offers a variety of nourishing dishes. Round off a leisurely day and enjoy a drink at The Point Restaurant & Bar, which is also just down the road.
