Extraordinarily Elegant San Diego Waterfront Weddings and Receptions
One of the Best Wedding Venues in San Diego
The lovely 1898 Berkeley ferryboat, gracing San Diego Bay with her turn-of-the-century charm and ambiance, is available for weddings and receptions. She has two open-air decks, offering your choice of downtown skyline or sunset views of the harbor. The upper deck and dance floor are also crowned with Victorian-era stained glass windows, softly backlit after dark. The ferryboat is an excellent site for both weddings and receptions, offering a full array of services from your ceremony to your bon voyage.
Our own majestic Star of India is without question the most unique wedding location in Southern California, making us one of the best wedding venues in San Diego, if not the world. She is the oldest active sailing ship in the world. Built in 1863, she has circled the globe 21 times with her soaring masts and spars that support her white billowing sails. Your wedding ceremony will be celebrated in timeless elegance and unparalleled beauty.
