Cabrillo’s San Salvador commemorates the 1542 expedition led by explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo aboard the original San Salvador. Among Cabrillo’s many discoveries was present-day San Diego Bay, where the full-scale, seaworthy replica of his flagship galleon was built by skilled shipwrights and volunteers under the auspices of the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Twenty years in the planning and five years in construction, San Salvador is the Maritime Museum of San Diego’s newest educational platform, bringing our rich Pacific maritime history to life for adventurers young and old.
