San Diego Bay Walk along Spanish Landing Park to San Salvador Build-Site

The Maritime Museum of San Diego is building a full-sized, fully functional, and historically accurate replica of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s flagship, San Salvador, which entered San Diego Bay on September 28, 1542. A one-mile walk of 20-30 minutes from the back gate of the Sheraton Hotel north along San Diego Bay through Spanish Landing Park will arrive at the San Salvador build-site (http://www.sdmaritime.org/san-salvador-build/), where a box lunch awaits and a guided tour of the Spanish galleon under construction will be led by a museum staff member. In addition to the 260,000-ton ship under construction, the site includes historical exhibits on sixteenth-century shipbuilding tools, ropes, sails, sailing ships, and an exhibit of the local Kumeyaay Indians’ habitat at the time of 1542 contact.

Cost of box lunch and site entry is $23. Registration is nonrefundable. This lunch tour is limited to the first twenty-five participants.

This tour is sold out.
