A very beautiful tall ship has returned to San Diego. The Mystic Whaler is visiting the Maritime Museum of San Diego prior to a little shipyard work down in the South Bay.
I snapped photos of Mystic Whaler in January, as it was making its way up to the Channel Islands, where it now takes students on educational sailing excursions.
The 110-foot, 97-ton schooner was built in Florida in 1967, and once hosted cruises at its previous base in Connecticut. That explains the Mystic name.
I was excited to see this amazing tall ship again, and my camera promptly came out, of course!
Enjoy a few new photos…
I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!

Mystic Whaler is in the Marine Group. We (aboard the BILL OF RIGHTS) look forward to visiting with the crew and helping out as we can.. Great to have sister tallships in town… We now have Mystic Whaler, Spirit of Dana Point and HMS Surprise all in the yard.. The BILL OF RIGHTS is at her home port in Chula Vista, just finished a few weeks of educational programs (sails) aboard.

Three amazing tall ships together in one place, and four at one time in South Bay. Very cool!
