Maritime Museum of San Diego, 1492 North Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101

We're setting sail for San Diego Harbor for the annual Sea Chantey Festival! Presented by San Diego Folk Heritage, sea chanteys and the sailing life they describe will come to life during the festival aboard the Star of India, the world's oldest active sailing ship. The music begins at 11:00 a.m., and we perform at 1:30 p.m. The whole event is included with Maritime Museum admission at no extra charge.

Visitors will enjoy sea chanteys and traditional folk music performed by several local and national groups, us included. The Star of India sail crew will demonstrate various shipboard skills traditionally accompanied by sea chanteys and visitors will have a chance to join in and raise the sails of the historic ship.
