Looking for something inexpensive to do in San Diego? Sea World and The infamous San Diego Zoo have your budget spent? Do you like sailing ships and submarines? Then you must visit the Maritime Museum located on the San Diego Bay.
At the time of this post the admission into the Maritime Museum is an affordable $14 per adult. Cheap! And you can spend hours touring the 3 sailing ships, a steam sailing ship, a pilot boat, a huge steam ship and 2 submarines.
For an additional $3 per person you can take a 45 minute Bay Cruise aboard the Pilot. Well worth the money! Really!
At this wonderful museum you are allowed to board all of the vessels and explore to your heart’s content.
This ship was used in 2 movies.
Master and Commander with Russell Crowe in 2003 and drum roll please…
Pirates of the Caribbean 4 with my most favorite actor, Johnny Depp. This was the ship that the mermaids sank. Sadly, Johnny was not aboard the ship during the shooting of the movie. But just think….he was nearby!!!
Here are some more photos for your viewing pleasure…
Contrary to popular belief I did not have to starve myself like Winnie the Pooh for a week to get through the rabbit hole!
