San Diego has a Maritime Museum, consisting of a handful of ships.


The Berkeley is the biggest one, with the main museum.


There was a "pirate days" event going on, but it was rather lackluster...


Pirate kid.


HMS Surprise was used in some movies, including Master and Commander.


The Star of India also has a couple decks of exhibits.


The Star of India was once called the Euterpe.








Stead Ellis and his family traveled across the ocean in a small cabin.




More exhibits on the Star of India.






A Russian B-39 submarine.


Looks yummy...


I think this cabin was dressed up for Master and Commander.




The girl is reading commands for the re-enactor to load and fire his flintlock.


Medea history.


USS Dolphin submarine history.


Canning process.


The Berkeley engine.






More exhibits.




The 2-mast schooner is available for a cruise. I took one :-)


Re-enactors.


USS Dolphin.


Sword-fighting lessons.


Some size restrictions for the B-39 sub tour.


The Mary Ann on the dock.


The dock behind the Berkeley.


B-39 sub, Star of India, and seafood restaurant.


The America also has a cruise.


HMS Surprise and Star of India.


Gun port.

Kyle, thanks for the tour, enjoyed it very much. The last time I was at the foot of Broadway, The Star of India was about the only attraction. TFS Cliff

I guess they've fleshed it out a bit since then :-)

There is also the USS Midway aircraft carrier museum a mile or so down the road.
