Cal Maritime Day is designed for you to look over the Academy from stem to stern. 

  • Tour the residence halls, the simulators, the Training Ship GOLDEN BEAR, the classrooms, and the labs
  • Learn about your major from professors, current students, and recent alumni
  • See the surprising variety of clubs and organizations to round out your education
  • A continental breakfast and lunch is available.

While the event is not mandatory in any way, it's designed for both those who are still deciding where to attend next fall AND those who have already chosen Cal Maritime.  We hope to see you there!
