More about Historic Bay Cruises.

Maritime Museum of San Diego continues to temporarily pause marine operations for San Salvador and Californian adventure sail experiences due to COVID and the health and safety of our volunteer crew. Traditional tall ship sailing experiences require a number of people, both regular crew and participating guests, exerting physical effort while working in very close proximity in order to set and trim sails on these historic vessels and make it difficult to comply with current best public health practices. The Maritime Museum of San Diego will extend ticket purchase redemption once sailings are resumed. Thank you for your patience, and HOLD FAST, We will weather this TOGETHER.

Following State Guidelines, Open Weekends 10am - 5pm
