You made the planning of our event not only easy but so much darn fun!!!

 — Pillsbury Winthrop LLP


Thank you, everyone had such a wonderful time. The Maritime staff was nothing short of fantastic and made the event exciting and memorable.

— Oliver McMillan


I wanted to say a very big thank-you to you and your team for helping us to host a most wonderful event on the Berkeley and Californian last night.  The venue looked beautiful, all of the staff was friendly and helpful, and the entertainment and catering was perfect.  You've both been such a support and help to me in organizing this event, which has been challenging due to my being on the other side of the world!  

I would not hesitate in recommending the San Diego Maritime Museum and will indeed do so again whenever the occasion arises.  Thanks again!

— Eversheds, London LLP


I would like to say yet again how much I appreciated all your hard work and support...Everything went so well... Obviously, your venue was huge success since we generally get 50-55% participation and yours closer to 72%.

— University of Kansas


Our event went off without a hitch!  The view was breathtaking, the ship was magical, and the food was delicious; leaving our guests with a night they would never forget!  The Maritime Museum was a pleasure to work with before, during, and after our event.  Their prompt response and willingness to help really made planning our event easy.  I called and emailed many times with questions and ideas and each answer came promptly with a willingness and readiness to work together to really make the event successful.  The Maritime Museum not only had many great ideas for our event, but they also were flexible in letting us incorporate some of our own ideas.  All of the people we worked with were so friendly and professional; they continuously catered to our needs, but not without keeping our budget, theme, and purpose of our event in mind.  I would highly recommend hosting an event with the Maritime Museum; they exceeded all of my expectations and were such an essential part of making our event a success!

I can honestly say that we received the best service here with the Maritime Museum over anywhere else we have gone (which was many, many, many places!) I will definitely recommend the Berkeley to everyone....
