    This is an amazing ship, probably one of the oldest sailing ship that still runs. It takes you way back in time and is a great experience.

    An excellent sightseeing adventure for history buffs. Located on the San Diego Bay within easy walking distance to the cruise ship harbor, USS Midway and Seaport Village.

    Just a couple blocks away at the bay. There are tours you can take on this. Not sure of the schedule, but you can look this up or call.

    Star of India is the oldest active sailing ship in the world and part of the great collection to experience at Maritime Museum. Let your sailor spirit shows. It's a place to visit especially if you have kids with you!

    Experience a true ship's voyage on this historic gem of San Diego. Both a ship and a museum, you can tour the oldest active sailing ship in the world to see photographs and artifacts below the deck.

    In summer they show movies on the sails, actually its a projector that's pointed at the sails, sit back and watch a movie, or tour this great historic boat.

    Actually stayed in the Holiday Inn across the street from the Star of India. It's quite a sight lit up at night.
