History on the high seas.

The Maritime Museum of San Diego features a world-class collection of historic vessels including sailing ships, steam-powered boats and submarines. You can board and explore our ships. Some even take passengers!

Our 1914 Pilot boat does 45 minute History bay cruises 5 tours a day, 7 days a week. Swift Boat does two 75 minutes tours covering military history of San Diego bay during the weekends. Californian does three hour Tall Ship Adventure Sailings most weekends.

HMS Surprise & Medea are at dry dock and off exhibit.
