SAN DIEGO – Sailor Days are taking place at The Maritime Museum of San Diego from Nov. 20-27 and between the hours of 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., daily.
Adults and children can directly participate in a variety of sailor activities. Families learn how to be a sailor and can make rope for sailing, move cargo, tie sailor knots as well as raise and lower huge sails. Activities vary each Monday.
Scavenger hunts around the ships provide children with an entertaining way to learn about history. Participating children earn a prize from a treasure chest.
Visit all the museum’s historic ships, exhibits and Sailor Days’ activities for one price. The fee for adults is $16 per person. The price for seniors, military with ID and students between the ages of 13 to 17 years is $13. The cost for children between the ages of 3 to 12 years is $8. Families can pay $43 for a family package admission special that includes admission for two adults and 2 children (between the ages of 3 and 12).
Visitors can also board the museum’s historic 1914 harbor pilot boat and enjoy a historic bay cruise on the San Diego Bay for an additional $5 per person.
