Our Corporate Event Venues Produce Positive Results and an Incredible Experience!

San Diego’s best location for off site corporate mixers, meetings and private events. The Maritime Museum offers four incredible ships, each with their own unique personality.

The National Historic Landmark, 1898 Berkeley ferryboat, located near the convention center on San Diego Bay, is available for corporate and private events, meetings, special events, and social gatherings. The Berkeley event space is not only unique with her gorgeous Victorian period appointments, but the space also has two large open-air decks that offer incredible views of both the downtown city skyline as well as breathtaking sunset views of the harbor. The event space boasts a large dance floor, beautiful hand carved wood seating, and Victorian (opalescent) stained glass windows that are back-lit at night and crown the venue with grace and elegance.

The historic tall ship Star of India is arguably, the most unique icon of San Diego, if not all of southern California. Built in 1863, she has circled the globe 21 times and has been designated with National and State Historic Landmark status.

The Star of India or any of the ships can be transformed, from an elegant cocktail reception to an exhilarating Pirate party. With its magnificent top decks, the Star of India is surrounded by a 360 degree breath-taking view of the San Diego skyline and harbor.

HMS Surprise, from the 20th Century fox Studios movie hit, Master & Commander, is available for corporate events and private events or gatherings. Host your unique corporate event, cocktail reception, a pre-dinner gathering, or dance on her decks into the night. She has a treasure of opportunities.

The HMS Surprise is fantastic for themed events as guests never forget the experiences aboard this majestic venue.

California’s State tall ship, Californian, has the dexterity to sail or stay dockside for intimate events and charters. She is instrumental in serving the community with our results oriented corporate team-building and sailing programs.

Event Review by Susan Hayes

Susan Hayesposted to Event Venues San Diego
  • Love having our event on the Berkeley, such a pretty venue and the staff are just wonderful to work with. The set up for a silent auction is so well figured out, and Jim Davis is really knowledgeable about how to arrange things. The catering staff are really professional, and we got great value for our money with the food. Everyone is really dedicated to making the event a success.
    Thank you Susan!
