Please join us!

Your membership to San Francisco Maritime National Park Association enables San Francisco’s students, visitors and locals alike to experience a hands-on, interactive voyage into San Francisco’s waterfront past. Boarding historic ships like the Balclutha, you are transported not just to the seafaring history of 1906, but also into the lives of the people whose work built San Francisco’s economy and the cities of the West. The historic vessels at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park and the USS Pampanito Submarine give us a new way of understanding time. They are a portal between the past and today.
Visitors to San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park discover the charm of old San Francisco, and they learn the stories that made San Francisco what it is today. They explore the real Fisherman’s Wharf – and leave San Francisco with a better understanding of our city’s importance on the development of the West and the history of America.
When you join the San Francisco Maritime National Park Association, your membership supports an exceptional educational experience for all. You build the self-confidence of students. And you sustain an exciting, authentic destination that reflects the best of San Francisco’s past and present.
