Here’s more information about San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park:
At San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park you will experience the sights, sounds, and textures of the city’s seafaring past. You will get to know what life was like for the people who made their living at sea. From the wooden decks of Balclutha, a square-rigger that rounded Cape Horn 17 times, duck into the cramped cabins where sailors sheltered during months at sea. In the hold of the coastal schooner C.A. Thayer walk along the curving sides where freshly cleaned sh, layered with salt, were stacked to the ceiling.
Along Hyde Street Pier, park staff and volunteers mend lines, varnish brightwork, and tend pung steam engines. Rangers lead a variety of programs, even high aloft in Balclutha’s rigging. The Age of Sail environmental living program bunks school children overnight on historic vessels. At the small-boat shop craftspeople shape and bend on steam-softened planks to repair historic boats and build replicas.
