Building the San Salvador with Dr. Raymond Ashley

Building the San Salvador with Dr. Raymond Ashley

Join us for an epic journey onboard the San Salvador with Dr. Raymond Ashley, President, Maritime Museum of San Diego.

As Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo’s flagship, the San Salvador was a 100 foot full-rigged galleon used for exploration. It was the first to anchor at the Santa Catalina Island in 1542.
Since 2011, the Maritime Museum of San Diego has been building a full-sized, fully functional, historically accurate replica of the ship.

Raymond takes us on the journey of constructing the vessel, giving us the opportunity to watch from a close perspective as the first modern industrial activity in America comes to life.

4 PM and 7 PM  |  Doors open at 30 minutes in advance
Free for Members or $15 for Non-Members
Registration and pre-payment are required.
