The Embarcadero is considered a must-see among San Diego’s attractions. It is a paved pedestrian path lying on the edge of the

Striking San Diego Harbor and leads to a variety of restaurants, boating tours, fish markets and other miscellaneous shops. Several city harbor and dinner cruise ships including the Harbor excursion tour ships take off from the Embarcadero.

Here at the Embarcadero, you will also find the world’s oldest active ship, the Star of India, which was built in 1863. The San Diego Maritime Museum that operates the Star of India is located at the Embarcadero.

The San Diego Maritime Museum Deck of the Star of India was founded in 1948. They not only undertook to restore the Star, but also grew in 1973 when they acquired the ferryboat Berkeley and the steam yacht Medea.

The Berkeley ferried for almost six decades between the San Diego Bay and the San Francisco Bay. Today she rests at the San Diego waterfront, and is the present headquarters for the Museum, accommodating workshops, offices, the maritime library and the gift shop.

The Embarcadero Marina is a quarter mile long boardwalk and connects the Embarcadero to Seaport Village and the Convention Center. The Embarcadero Marina is actually an arm of land that reaches into the San Diego Bay, enveloping the shiny white boats moored at the edge of Seaport Village.

You will find that the Embarcadero Marina is a terrific place for leisure. It is an ideal place where concerts and other forms of entertainment happen. There is also lots of open space ideal for recreational activities. You can get a lot of shopping and eating opportunities at Seaport Village.
