San Diego Weddings: Get Married on a Boat

If you're getting married in San Diego, why not do it on a boat? We have a couple recommendations for you:

The 1898 Berkeley Ferryboat and the 1863 Star of India.

1898 Berkeley Ferryboat

For turn-of-the-century ambiance the 1898 Berkeley Ferryboat will not disappoint. You will be treated to two open-air decks, with your choice of views of the downtown skyline or sunset views of the harbor. Like to dance? Then you're in luck. The dance floor on the boat is crowned with Victorian stained glass windows. The price isn't cheap (on the weekends it's $1,400 for 100 people or less, with a $750 booking fee, $1,400 in December. Plus additional fees for catering and entertainment). But if you have the bucks and love boating, this is the place to say "I do."

Star of India

Or, is it this place? The Star of India, built in 1863, is the oldest active sailing ship in the world. Have your ceremony at the helm for a truly memorable wedding experience. Again, a little pricey ($1,000 per hour - minimum of 2 hours, with a $1,000 booking fee. Ceremony only is $750 for up to 80 guests, minimum of 2 hours), but it is an only-in-San Diego
experience.

You have your choice of many different types of catered menus (again, extra charge), including an elegant buffet, Mexican buffet, Italian buffet, Mediterranean buffet and many other menu choices.

You are allowed to decorate, but they do have pretty strict limitations, so any decorations will have to be approved before they are put up. They're adamant that there will be no glitter, no confetti and no rice. So, keep the rice at home folks.
