Pirate ship HMS Surprise is ready for you to step aboard

You can step aboard a full size pirate ship in San Diego!  The HMS Surprise is a 179-foot 24 gun frigate replica used in the movie “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”.   The Maritime Museum  has restored her to seaworthy condition and sails her several times a year. 



  1. I’ve never toured that one before. Look at how blue the sky is! The weather has been so wonderful, we’re in for a fantastic weekend!

  2. I really like these photos.

    They are a reminder of all the boats I used to admire when I was younger.

    I wrote in my Memories blog about the roads of my youth and how they were to travel in the winter time.

  3. I liked the books and thought movie was good. Sadly I live in UK so I may never get to visit HMS Surprise.
