The 500' long Golden Bear voyages during the summer from our home in Vallejo to ports in the Pacific, Caribbean, and Atlantic before returning to Vallejo. During its voyages, hundreds of Cal Maritime students run the ship while overseen by licensed deck officers and licensed engineers. They also take courses while underway, perform ship maintenance at sea and in port, and have liberty (free-time) in each port. During May and June 2019, the Golden Bear itinerary includes Los Angeles (San Pedro), California, Barbados, Lisbon, Portugal, the Azores, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and finally in Galveston, TX where students will disembark and travel home. .
