  • Discover the incredible naval past of America on beautifully restored historical ships
  • Walk the decks of the oldest operational ship in the world, the Star of India
  • Engage in naval warfare aboard the HMS Surprise, the actual ship used in the movie Master and Commander!

Hoist the anchor of boredom and set your sails for an ocean of fun and fascinating history at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Climb aboard the oldest operational ship in the world, hear tales of rum-running pirates, man the cannons in a naval battle royale, learn to navigate by the stars, and lots more.

Before air travel killed the seafaring star, the world was shaped by swashbuckling adventures on the high seas. The Maritime Museum of San Diego takes you on an immersive voyage back across the tide of time to discover the fascinating stories of maritime history.

Step aboard the world's oldest operational ship, the venerable old Star of India, and experience an interactive journey into the age of sail.

Fast forward into the age of steam aboard the Ferryboat Berkeley to see how steam power revolutionized global commerce and exploration - without the need for a stiff breeze!

Mainline your inner Russell Crowe (within reason!) and fire the cannons like a man-o-war of old, in a sea skirmish reenactment on the HMS Surprise (the actual ship used in the film Master and Commander)!

Star of India is the ship we spent most time. All others are very interesting and worthwhile visiting.
