- Star of India, retired from service in 1923, arrived in San Diego to begin the Maritime Museum of San Diego’s history as a component of the San Diego Zoological Society. Founded in 1948, the museum grew out of the earlier efforts of a group of local historians and maritime enthusiasts who acquired the sailing ship Star of India in 1927. Now fully restored, the Star of India is maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers and skilled craftsmen and sailed at least once a year. Today, the Maritime Museum of San Diego includes a fleet of ten historic vessels. Guests have the opportunity to explore Star of India, storied ships including historic landmarks such as the 1898 steam ferryboat Berkeley, steam yacht Medea, USS Dolphin submarine, art galleries, naval history exhibits, maritime history exhibits, and much, much more. You can even head out on a San Diego Bay cruise on our 1914 pilot boat or take a naval history bay tour aboard the Museum's US Naval PCF 816 Swift boat.
