My husband and I recently had the pleasure of cruising aboard the tall ship, the Californian located at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Paul, Ships Operations Master and his all-volunteer crew are awesome at sailing the ship and entertaining the passengers. We really enjoyed our cruise, complete with pirates and the firing of cannons. We did not have much time to donate to the other ships and submarines located there as we were in town for a short visit. We will definitely plan to spend more time at this museum on our next visit.

The Volunteers make it all come to life! The day I was there they were dressed in historic garb and even had a live musket that they let my grandson load and fire! One volunteer drives in from the Los Angeles area and they have vast stores of knowledge about the individual ships. I expected to stay an hour or so instead, three hours were spent just in two of the sailing ships. Much more to see the next stop.

There's a lot of history about ships on the Berkeley, and on the nearby static display ships, including two subs, a well-preserved old hunting yacht, and the USS Surprise, moored next to the Berkeley. Pay an extra $5 for your admission to the Berkeley and you can see them all. So worthwhile - !

The convenience of seeing these different sea vessels was extremely appealing. Lovely way to spend an afternoon

Nice self guided tours of several boats. The kids liked the submarines. It is better to go earlier when more volunteers are on hand to provide information.
