Our Corporate Event Venues produce positive results and an incredible experience too!

San Diego’s best location for off site corporate mixers, meetings and private events. The Maritime Museum offers four incredible ships, each with their own unique personality.

The National Historic Landmark, 1898 Berkeley ferryboat, located near the convention center on San Diego Bay, is available for corporate and private events, meetings, special events, and social gatherings. The Berkeley event space is not only unique with her gorgeous Victorian period appointments, but the space also has two large open-air decks that offer incredible views of both the downtown city skyline as well as breathtaking sunset views of the harbor. The event space boasts a large dance floor, beautiful hand carved wood seating, and Victorian (opalescent) stained glass windows that are back-lit at night and crown the venue with grace and elegance.

The historic tall ship Star of India is arguably, the most unique icon of San Diego, if not all of southern California. Built in 1863, she has circled the globe 21 times and has been designated with National and State Historic Landmark status.

The Star of India or any of the ships can be transformed, from an elegant cocktail reception to an exhilarating Pirate party. With its magnificent top decks, the Star of India is surrounded by a 360 degree breath-taking view of the San Diego skyline and harbor.

HMS Surprise, from the 20th Century fox Studios movie hit, Master & Commander, is available for corporate events and private events or gatherings. Host your unique corporate event, cocktail reception, a pre-dinner gathering, or dance on her decks into the night. She has a treasure of opportunities.

The HMS Surprise is fantastic for themed events as guests never forget the experiences aboard this majestic venue.

California’s State tall ship, Californian, has the dexterity to sail or stay dockside for intimate events and charters. She is instrumental in serving the community with our results oriented corporate team-building and sailing programs.

Thank you, everyone had such a wonderful time. The Maritime staff was nothing short of fantastic and made the event exciting and memorable.
— Oliver McMillan

I wanted to say a very big thank-you to you and your team for helping us to host a most wonderful event on the Berkeley and Californian last night. The venue looked beautiful, all of the staff was friendly and helpful, and the entertainment and catering was perfect. You've both been such a support and help to me in organizing this event, which has been challenging due to my being on the other side of the world!
I would not hesitate in recommending the San Diego Maritime Museum and will indeed do so again whenever the occasion arises. Thanks again!
— Eversheds, London LLP

I would like to say yet again how much I appreciated all your hard work and support...Everything went so well... Obviously, your venue was huge success since we generally get 50-55% participation and yours closer to 72%.

Our event went off without a hitch! The view was breathtaking, the ship was magical, and the food was delicious; leaving our guests with a night they would never forget! The Maritime Museum was a pleasure to work with before, during, and after our event. Their prompt response and willingness to help really made planning our event easy. I called and emailed many times with questions and ideas and each answer came promptly with a willingness and readiness to work together to really make the event successful. The Maritime Museum not only had many great ideas for our event, but they also were flexible in letting us incorporate some of our own ideas. All of the people we worked with were so friendly and professional; they continuously catered to our needs, but not without keeping our budget, theme, and purpose of our event in mind. I would highly recommend hosting an event with the Maritime Museum; they exceeded all of my expectations and were such an essential part of making our event a success!

I can honestly say that we received the best service here with the Maritime Museum over anywhere else we have gone (which was many, many, many places!) I will definitely recommend the Berkeley to everyone....
