Group Tours


How do I request a campus group tour at Cal Maritime?

What does a group tour entail?

  • The Office of Admission offers tours and information sessions Monday through Friday (except holidays), from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM.
  • Your visit will begin with an informational session in the Office of Admission, followed by a one-hour tour of campus' unique facilities.
  • Uniformed cadets will escort you through classrooms, laboratories, simulators, and aboard the Training Ship Golden Bear.
  • Following the tour, you may choose to purchase lunch at the Dining Center on the southwest corner of campus.

What times of year can I request a group tour?

  • To experience the full educational benefit of a campus tour, please request your visit between the months of mid-September and early April.
  • The Training Ship Golden Bear sails between late April and mid-August, and few cadets remain on campus during summer months.
  • To ensure a worthwhile tour, check our academic calendar for scheduled holidays and breaks during the academic year.
  • Complete the form below and wait for confirmation from the Office of Admission before scheduling your visit.
  • The Office of Admission can accomodate up to one group of 50 students per day.

What must I know about boarding the Training Ship Golden Bear?

  • To board the Training Ship Golden Bear, campus visitors must comply with all ship and federal regulations and safety policies.
  • Please wear closed-toe, preferrably flat-soled footwear. Persons in opened-toe and high-heeled shoes cannot board.
  • Visitors with unauthorized footwear or limited mobility and/or below six years of age cannot board the ship.
  • To avoid hazards, walk slowly, use handrails in stairwells, and do not press buttons or pull switches.
  • All visitors must present at least one form of picture ID (for example, a driver's licence).

What do I do when my group arrives for its tour?

  • Buses: Offload visitors at Lot A, next to the Administration Building, and park for free in Lot O at the front entrance of campus.
  • Private Vehicles: Park in Lot B or D. Purchase a $5 Daily Parking Permit from a kiosk and display it on your dashboard.
  • Meet your cadet tour guides in the Office of Admission, in the northeast corner of the Student Services Building.
  • For your convenience, download the Cal Maritime Campus Map or call (707) 654-1330 for directions.
