""Master and Commander"" Downtown San Diego Tip by IceBear7

Downtown San Diego, San Diego: 37 reviews and 72 photos


Down by the water, a pathway called the Embarcadero is busy with joggers, roller-bladers and kite flyers. Some old ships - like the Star of India on my intro page - attract visitors, and artists have decorated the promenade walk with artificial artistic trees (see travelogue). But one ugly old ship is getting little attention, although it has the biggest story to tell: the HMS Surprise was the ship in the recent movie Master and Commander and sailed the world with its captain Russel Crowe.

Now open for visit on the Maritime Museum Tour.
