2010 - 2012 Annual Report

Our mission ExplorOcean/Newport Harbor Nautical Museum is dedicated to sharing the adventure, history and natural wonders of the sea through fun and entertaining multi-sensory exhibitions, sciencebased educational programs, and enriching cultural events.


Message from The Board of Directors and President This last year marked a significant milestone as we celebrated our 25th Anniversary! A year with record breaking attendance with over 42,000 visitors, representing students, tourists and our community at large came through our galleries, and attended our programs and community events. Your personal support has contributed to our longevity and success – and we are grateful to you and our community for rallying around us and continuing to support our organization. The anniversary celebration set forth the opening of our new ExplorOcean Preview Center. This exhibit, (realizing 15,445 visitors in its first 9 months), allows us to share a glimpse of our exciting vision for the future by merging a dynamic mix of multi-media, immersive experiences and displays with a variety of artifacts and historic photos from our collection. We have worked hard to educate the community about our plans and listen to their concerns. Over 40 community presentations and events were held reaching nearly 54,000 residents, school district educators, and business and community organizations; we collected hundreds of comments cards and 89% expressed undeniable support. Together we will proceed to

offer an inspiring and gripping ocean experience that will set the scene for future generations of families and friends, as well as pay tribute to our harbor’s storied heritage. Combined, our efforts will infuse a new level of fun, enrichment and entertainment, and help build new memories of the Balboa Fun Zone that has been a part of our community for 75 years. Our new facility will present entertaining and inspiring experiences that will immerse visitors in the adventure and science of the sea. It will also house a significant exhibit space where our meaningful collection, exciting traveling exhibits and interactive permanent exhibits will be on display. Its most significant role will be to deliver extensive educational programming that will excite ocean discovery and appeal to all ages. More attention than ever is focused on providing bold new programs for school-age children and their teachers that will have an impact for years to come. As we celebrate our significant recent accomplishments and our newly defined positive and bright future, your steadfast support remains vital to sustaining and enhancing the cultural role of our institution in our community and to all that visit us.

Making A Difference In Our Community Education

Since opening our doors 25 years ago, The Museum has worked to build and maintain partnerships with community organizations, schools, and social service agencies, offering programs and educational opportunities that connect diverse communities with the Museum’s rich collections, exhibits and resources. From our humble beginnings in the one-room facility to our location today in the heart of the Balboa Fun Zone, our education programs continue to provide unique content for children of all ages, families, teachers, adult learners, and special audiences alike through interpretation of the Museum’s collections and our commitment to ocean exploration and literacy. This year the Museum launched a science based, educational and entertaining, 4 minute video series designed to meet California Science Content Standards curriculum for biology, earth sciences, and geography. The series will describe specific oceanographic or coastal earth science phenomena to an online web audience for multiple grades for public, private and home-school use with focus on current issues in marine science. The first series of videos produced: The Wedge examines the famous surf location in Newport Beach; Tide Pools, helps to understand the delicate ecosystem along the coastline; and Deep Sea Exploration aids students understanding of the impacts of descending under water. In addition to the video, curriculum is available to download including science standard guidelines, activity sheets and vocabulary. Providing teachers with these classroom tools to augment classroom learning helps us to keep an active connection to the students that visit us and to those we look forward to seeing at a future fieldtrip.


More Community Impact, Highlights and Signature Programs Waterman Lecture Series

Our Waterman Lecture Series continues to grow with favorite and new educational and inspirational historians, explorers, adventurers and maritime experts such as Seafaring Tales lecturer David Grant, Michael Lawler, Don R. Preul, Chris Welsh and Roz Savage. Sea Dogs, Sailors and Scientists

Sea Dogs, Sailors and Scientists was our inaugural Spring Break Festival that celebrated both the famous and infamous characters in nautical history. Among the many activities, ExplorOcean/Newport Harbor Nautical Museum provided visitors with hands-on and interactive learning activities, edible constellation creations and sea monster making. Adventurous scavenger hunts, Pirate led gallery tours and navigational games all took place here at the Balboa Fun Zone during this special week. Five Dives Partnership

Five Dives Expedition co-founder and sub pilot Chris Welsh has named ExplorOcean as the exclusive Southern California educational partner for the Five Dives mission. Over the course of 2012 and beyond, Virgin Oceanic’s one-person sub will journey to the deepest part of each of Earth’s five oceans. The first dive will be to the deepest place on the planet: the bottom of the Mariana Trench – 11 kilometers (7 mi) straight down. Subsequent dives will carry a human pilot to the bottom of the Atlantic, Arctic, Southern and Indian oceans. Less than 3% of the seafloor has been explored, and none of the deepest points of the planet have ever been explored beyond a brief visit to one.

A N N UA L R E P O RT 2 010 - 2 012

Galleries Through generous donations, ExplorOcean/ Newport Harbor Nautical Museum has been fortunate to assemble a notable Permanent Collection which in great part is showcased in our four galleries. The Steele Model Pavilion features archival photos, ship models, video programs (featuring Transpac and extreme sailing), and a fully rigged Snowbird. The East Wing is home to Sea of Adventure – an interactive experience that furthers our mission to inspire relationships with the ocean. The Extraordinary People Gallery, founded on the premise that in everyday people there is the ability to become an inspiration to humanity, a hero to your community and an example of how to give back—even in the darkest of times, is currently home to the Nick Scandone Story. Our Preview Center integrates our historic collection with a sampling of exhibits from our new expansion.


Looking Forward New Plans

ExplorOcean, represents an exciting new chapter for the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum at the popular Balboa Fun Zone. By combining informative interactive exhibits with state-of-the-art entertainment experiences, this ‘unique’ facility will plunge visitors into humankind’s epic adventure of ocean exploration, so they too become inspired to uncover the secrets of Earth’s wild blue frontier.

With indoor and outdoor components, ExplorOcean will reenergize the Balboa Fun Zone, while giving Newport Beach a vibrant community gathering place. For all visitors, ExplorOcean will present an inspiring call to action. The ocean remains largely uncharted, yet it may hold the key to our future. It’s time to explore!

At ExplorOcean, visitors will sail through time to draw inspiration from the great explorers who braved the unknown seas before them. They’ll meet contemporary explorers investigatng the hotpots of ocean discovery today. They’ll journey to the deepest, darkest trenches of the ocean abyss to get a hint of the amazing discoveries that await them there.
