San Diego, You're Invited - Celebrate The Fourth On San Diego Bay

The Maritime Museum of San Diego offers memorable options for viewing fireworks.

The best place to celebrate the Fourth of July will be at the Maritime Museum again this year. The observation deck of the museum’s historic 1898 steam ferry Berkeley provides a spectacular view of the fireworks show over San Diego Bay.

A delicious picnic dinner will be provided at two seatings. One from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m. and the other from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Fireworks viewing are included with museum admission and guests are welcome to watch fireworks from several ships as well as the new mooring platform located directly behind the Berkeley. Fireworks begin at 9:00 p.m. Prices for dinner purchased in advance online are $30 for adults and $18 children 12 and under. Kids 5 and under are free.

For those looking for a more exhilarating experience, the museum is offering a fireworks cruise on board the schooner Californian. The cruise will leave the museum at 6:30 p.m. and return after the fireworks show is over.

Passengers on board will experience the awesome power of Californian’s six-pound deck guns as she joins the fireworks presentation with a rousing broadside. A full bar will be on board for those 21 and over wishing to purchase alcoholic beverages. Tickets for the fireworks cruise are $85 each.

Guests can also ride on the 1914 Pilot boat from 7:30-9:30 p.m. for just $35 and enjoy the fireworks from the water. All activities include admission to the museum and our art exhibits. Food and beverages will be available for purchase at our coffee cart.
