San Salvador Sailing Adventure

Aug 28 - Oct 23, 2021

Join us for this popular day sail adventure experience aboard San Salvador, a replica of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s ship that arrived at the port we now call San Diego on September 28, 1542. These 4-hour Sailing Adventures are for people who love history, and sailing. Very few people have sailed aboard galleons of the sixteenth century and these day sails offer the public a chance to be aboard the magnificent galleon, San Salvador. No sailing experience required. Unique to the experience is the opportunity to sail with an onboard historian to explain how San Salvador is sailed, navigated, and in the 16th century, was defended. Guests will learn of the ships history, connecting story to our Pacific Heritage, and the impact of ships like Explorer Cabrillo’s San Salvador during the age of exploration.
