Maritime Museum @ San Diego
Posted on August 19, 2018
Today, we visited the Maritime Museum of San Diego, located right on the water in San Diego Bay. It is comprised of 10 or so ships wet-docked and lashed together for you to explore. They have some beautiful ships here with lots of history, including: the still active barque The Star of India, a replica of Juan Cabrillo’s San Salvador, a replica of the HMS Rose (HMS Surprise) used in the movie Master and Commander, a US Navy PCF (Swift Boat) used in Vietnam, a Soviet Project-631 B-39 submarine used during the Cold War, etc. There are also active duty and retired servicemen and women who volunteer here.
