Holiday Parties

It’s that time of year again and along with the holidays come great parties!

Saturday Eventful hosted their holiday party aboard the Berkeley Ferryboat.  Music, cocktails, and holiday cheer filled the McKinney Deck late into the evening.

Sunset Mobile Music kept guests rocking and provided great tunes for the fashion show and dancing.

Food was provided by San Diego Catering and guests were seated around the dance floor.

Thanks for a great event @Eventful!  We hope to see you again soon.

Happy Holidays


Here at the museum we are excited to be a part of all of the San Diego holiday festivities.  Our ships will soon shimmer with twinkling lights and we will be hosting our annual fundraiser aboard the Berkeley Ferryboat during the Parade of Lights.

Since the Berkeley is the judging platform for the Parade of Lights awards, this event is typically a sell-out and its popularity has grown over the years. It is a perfect way to celebrate the holidays with family and friends, while supporting the Maritime Museum of San Diego.
