The Berkeley is an 1898 steam ferryboat that operated for 60 years on San Francisco Bay. A California State Historic Landmark, and a National Historic Landmark. She is, in a word, “irreplaceable.” 

Aboard the The ferryboat’s lower deck and main deck contain many important exhibits and displays, including her fully restored triple expansion steam engine, which, although no longer steam-operated, today performs for visitors with the aid of hydraulics and compressed air. 

Berkeley’s engine room is unique worldwide. During the 1906 San Francisco earthquake Berkeley carried thousands of survivors to safety. Her captain and crew, not knowing the fate of their own families, worked night and day to help victims escape the burning shores of San Francisco. Their unwavering and unselfish efforts saved many, many lives. 

She arrived in San Diego in 1973. Berkeley has a unique historical and architectural significance that is reminiscent of the Victorian Age. She is the finest example of a 19th century ferryboat afloat. The Berkeley’s hull underwent a revolutionary hull restoration process during the spring of 2003 that is expected to last for 50 years and may serve as the benchmark for the preservation of historic iron and steel hulled ships around the world.

 
The Berkeley has very rarely been investigated for paranormal activity.  This is an opportunity for some of you to be among the few that get to put her legends to the test.
Over the years, there have been countless staff reports of bizarre activity aboard these decks.  Some staff have reported not wanting to be alone on the Berkeley. 
Strange voices heard throughout the evening after hours, shadow apparitions, doors slamming, footsteps, objects being misplaced and later re-appearing.
Will the Berkeley live up to her legends?  Join us to find out!

We went on the private investigation of the Berkeley Ferry at the San Diego maritime museum. This group is legit! They were very personable and knowledgeable about the ferry and their equipment. We had some crazy experiences and really got a lot out of the investigation. We will definitely be back! Thanks for an amazing lockdown investigation.

I have investigated with this group on many occasions and have enjoyed it each time. They answer any questions you may have and give you the history about the place you are at and make it fun. They treat you like you are a member of the team with the equipment they offer you to use. [...] I did the Star of India and the Berkeley with my daughter which was her first time and by the end of the night she was hooked and wanted to go on the next adventure they will offer. I am so glad I found them and can't wait until next time!

A lot of fun. The tour guides provided a lot of information and they were honest about what they believed and didn't believe. Would definitely recommend as a fun and interesting thing to do. Great history lesson too!
