Celebrate Father’s Day on one of San Diego Maritime Museum’s historic ships
SAN DIEGO—Father’s Day is just around the corner and what better way than to invite Dad on a one-of-a-kind sailing adventure? The Maritime Museum of San Diego brings back their annual Father’s Day Sail on Sat. June 15 and Sun. June 16.
Guests can book a special day out for their fathers on the Maritime Museum’s tall ships Californian, a replica Gold-Rush-era schooner, and San Salvador, the replica of the 1542 Spanish galleon that Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo first sailed into San Diego. The event is sure to provide historical context about how these ships were crewed and what makes them so special. In addition to a relaxing lunch onboard, the more adventurous passengers can take part in activities with the crew onboard, learning how to haul a line, man the helm and more. Each ship offers a spectacular experience and passengers can choose which ship they would like to sail on at the time of purchase.
Though this is a family event, San Diego Maritime Museum’s website states this adventure is best suited for children ages 6 and up. Sailing adventures are offered at two times from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 3-6 p.m. over the weekend of Father’s Day. Tickets cost $99 for adults and $59 for ages 3-12. Lunch, beer and soft drinks will be available on the trip, which lasts for three hours.
The Maritime Museum of San Diego is located at 1492 North Harbor Drive in San Diego. For more information about this event or to book tickets, visit the website at sdmaritime.org/visit/public-events/fathers-day-sail.
