Up the bay from the U.S.S. Midway and the harbor tour boats, I walked by this collection of nautical vessels at the Maritime Museum several times and wished I had the time to tour them. I didn't see how much the price tag was but assuming it was the standard fare in the area, it probably would have been worth it. In front, is the U.S.S. Dolphin which is the deepest diving submarine in the world and still holds the record among active submarines. Behind that is the Berkeley steam ferry which used to work in San Diego Bay over a hundred years ago.
This ship was a replica of the British Royal Navy frigate Rose. Later is was converted to the HMS Surprise and used in the academy award winning film Master and Commander: Far Side of the World.
The Star of India seen above it the world's oldest active sailing ship and was built in 1863.
Above is a B39 Soviet Union submarine, one of the largest diesel and electric ones ever built. No word on how it ended up at the San Diego Maritime Museum.
