Phantom Movie

‘Phantom,’ in theaters March 1, 2013, was filmed on our very own B-39 Russian submarine here at the Maritime Museum of San Diego!  We are so excited!  Check it out.

“Phantom is one of the most realistic post WWII submarine movies that has ever been made.  It is also the first Hollywood movie shot almost entirely inside an actual, Soviet cold-war submarine, docked at the Maritime Museum of San Diego.  In particular, the film truly captures the unique camaraderie and courage any submarine crew experiences, whether American or Soviet.” 

-Captain Charles MacVean, US Navy (ret).  Former Skipper, U.S.S. SEAWOLF (SSN-575)

Calling All Volunteers!

We are presenting a once in a lifetime opportunity for those of us lucky enough to live in the San Diego area!

In early 2011 the Maritime Museum of San Diego began construction of a full size replica of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s flagship, the SAN SALVADOR.  This will be a full size USCG licensed operating replica ship, eighty feet long at the waterline.

San Salvador Construction Team

For those who love history, here is an opportunity to be a part of it.  Come join us and help build a piece of San Diego’s future history!  The site is open from 11:00 am until 4:30 pm daily, but construction is on weekdays only.  There may later be some Saturday activity.  Go on over to Spanish Landing Park (parking is free, Harbor Drive past the airport) on a weekday and ask the associate at the gate for a volunteer application.

We are looking for volunteers with all skill sets.  Don’t worry if you don’t have experience with construction–we will find something for you to do!

Give Jeff a call at 619-234-9153 ext. 135 or head over to Spanish Landing Park to get started!

Fair winds,

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hi lovebirds!

Looking for something special to do today?  Here are a few tips:

1. Go for a boat ride–we happen to have 5 cruises going out today at: 10:15, 11:15, 12:45, 1:45, and 2:45

2. Take a stroll together in the sun–the Embarcadero is always good for people watching and you may even see a sea lion

3. Grab a bite to eat on the waterfront–Anthony’s Fish Grotto or the Fish Market are convenient and romantic spots along the way

Hope you have a great day!

Fair winds,

Erica Geary

Wedding Review By Liz & Tim

Hi Warren!

This email has taken me way to long to write but I just couldn’t find the perfect words to thank you for all of your help with our wedding! And then I realized…those words don’t exist. Our wedding was way to perfect for any words…and it’s all because of you.

Thank you so much for everything! All of our guests loved the ship and they were very happy that they could stay longer and go and explore the other ones!

I’m in the process of printing some pictures and also making some photobooks but in the mean time here’s a link to the photographers website and the galleries…

THANK YOU again (can’t say it enough!)

Liz and Tim Koerschgen
