The Californian is a replica of a gold rush era revenue cutter and the Official Tall Ship of the State of California. The museums experienced crew will make your Fathers Day celebration unforgettable while sailing aboard a traditionally rigged tall ship. Passengers will be invited to haul a line, man the helm and we end the day with a rousing cannon salute. Watch the crew as they scamper up and down the rigging to set and furl the sails. Listen as the Californian’s crew relate the history of sailing and exploration in San Diego, tales of whaling and sea otter trade, local sea battles, the art of ship’s gunnery, life at sea and more.
The San Salvador under the command of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, arrived at the port we now call San Diego on September 28, 1542, before proceeding further north in search of new trade routes that would link Mexico to Asia and Europe. She was the first recorded European vessel to sail along Southern California, and survey its coastline.
