Would you, or someone you know, like to embark on the adventure of a lifetime?
You can start that adventure this very moment. Sign up to become one of a select few: those who help sail famous tall ships right here in San Diego. Including the oldest active sailing ship in the world, Star of India!
Start down the path to becoming a crewmember and you’ll create incredible memories. Your background, age or experience don’t matter.
Today I watched from the poop deck of Star of India as two new museum volunteers learned to tie knots.
With training, which includes a special class that begins every January, you, too, can help operate the replica 19th century schooner Californian; the replica 18th century British Frigate HMS Surprise; the 19th century three-masted Bark Star of India; the replica 16th century Spanish Galleon San Salvador; and the 20th century steam yacht Medea.

Retired? No problem? A student? No problem. Don’t know anything about ships or sailing? No problem!
Begin this adventure and you’ll learn nautical skills and acquire knowledge that very few people share.
Afraid of climbing high into a tall ship’s rigging? No problem! When operating these historic ships, there’s plenty to do down on deck, too!
This afternoon I spoke to Jim, First Mate of Star of India, and absorbed all sorts of interesting information. He told me there’s something new to learn at the Maritime Museum every single day. And he’s been with the museum now for almost 50 years! (He started out working in the gift shop!)
Interested? Begin your adventure of a lifetime now, by clicking here. You’ll even have a chance to help sail the beautiful Star of India herself, when next she goes out to sea, in November 2023!
That would make for one amazing memory.
