2017 Festival of Sail

It’s about that time again!

The 2017 Festival of Sail is almost here, and we’re as happy as a Steam Ferry!


The Festival of Sail, hosted by the Maritime Museum of San Diego, is the LARGEST Tall Ship festival on the West Coast. Every year, our team of sailors, experts, volunteers, members, and vendors come together, transforming the North Embarcadero into a nautical theme park for Labor Day Weekend!


On Thursday, August 31, a majestic flotilla of tall ships will once again be sailing on San Diego Bay. This parade salutes the start of the 4 day festival. You can visit our website to book a trip on one of our many sailing excursions that weekend, including a chance to actually be IN the Parade of Sail!
