About

Extraordinary Elegant San Diego Waterfront Weddings and Receptions.

The lovely 1898 Berkeley ferryboat, gracing San Diego Bay with her turn-of-the-century charm and ambiance is available for weddings and receptions. She has two open-air decks, offering your choice of downtown skyline or sunset views of the harbor. Her Ladies' deck and dance floor are also crowned with Victorian styled stained glass windows, softly backlit after dark. The ferryboat is an excellent site for both weddings and receptions, offering a full array of services from your ceremony to your bon voyage.

Our own majestic Star of India is without question the most unique wedding location in Southern California, if not the world. She is the oldest active sailing ship in the world. Built in 1863, she has circled the globe 21 times with her soaring masts and spars that support her white billowing sails. Your wedding ceremony will be celebrated in timeless elegance and unparalleled beauty.

A dedicated, and highly experienced, weddings team is on hand to ensure that the day is perfect for you and your guests.

    I loved having my wedding on the Star of India. It made for beautiful pictures and a great day. The staff always got back to me quickly with answers to all my questions and were very flexible.

    The SD Maritime Museum's ship "HMS Surprise" was a unique, fun, and special venue for our wedding. It went just as we hoped it would and was a very very good time for everyone. Jim and his team were very helpful in planning the big day and also helping me organize a sailing trip for friends and family the day after the wedding on the "Californian".

    Simply the most amazing place to hold an event. Our guests talk about it for years afterward. We have tried to use other venues but always come back to this one. The venue itself it captivating and the view, staff and unique quality plus central location make it a winning solution to every type of special event we have.
