    Loved this museum. Anyone visiting San Diego should come here and spend the afternoon. Then go eat at the Fish Market.

    This is the most horrible experience I have ever had at the Famous Yacht America for a four-hour whale watching. No customer service. No courtesy. No refunds. No re-embursements. There’s nowhere to park but 3-hour parking limits. The boat has already left when I got there but they did not want to help me at all. They show nothing but lack of respect and lack of communication. They ripped me off for I have waited for so long for my birthday. They’re just plain rude and cocky workers! Not recommended. I will never go there ever again!

    Save your money and take pictures from shore.They do right by their star attraction, the Star of India, and keep her well maintained. However, the other ships aren’t so well maintained.HMS Surprise – Dirty, more than one empty display cabinet.B39 – Amazed it is still afloat… From a distance the submarine looks fine, but up close reveals lots of badly painted over rust. The paint is bubbled and flaking where its been painted over and there were spots where the outer hull was eaten through. Can you say “tetanus.” The interior was in decent shape, but uncomfortably warm. Note, this sub is difficult to move through due to the size of the watertight hatches. Definitely not for the claustrophobic.Californian – Closed, along with the entire back half of the pier containing their smaller boats.PCF 816 Swift Boat – Tied up at an inaccessible location.Medea – Pretty, but entirely closed except for two compartments.Dolphin – fairly well maintained and easy to move through.Berkeley – This one houses a decent museum full of artwork, exhibits, and models. The engineering spaces were interesting to move through.Pilot boat – no opinion as it was on a sailing excursion at the time.I should have demanded a refund and visited the USS Midway Museum instead.

    A great place to take your out of town guests!One year for my birthday, some friends and I went out for a sail on the tallship the Californian. A fun day out, and for an extra $5, I got a year long pass to the museum, which came in handy for days I was wandering around the waterfront or had out of town visitors. I could explore one ship at a time at my leisure. I even saw a children’s pirate party once on one of the ships! Tour includes a few tallships and submarines. Definitely worthwhile.
