Cabrillo National Monument

Climbing out of his boat and onto shore in 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo stepped into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States. In addition to telling the story of 16th century exploration, the park is home to a wealth of cultural and natural resources. Join us and embark on your own Voyage of Discovery. 









Enjoy a delicious seafood meal at the award-winning Gabardine Neighborhood Kitchen!  Gabardine has a cozy and comfortable atmosphere, and is quickly becoming a favorite place for guests to GAB at the BAR and DINE. The lunch will feature the restaurant's new fall menu, including the new fall salad, Gabardine's famous Brussels as an appetizer, and Chef Malarkey is going to make a Portuguese Style seafood dish including mussels, clams, and local seafood.  It will be served family style - a Portuguese tradition!  For vegetarians/shellfish allergies- please let us know, Chef Malarkey will accommodate an alternate dish




San Salvador Build Site at Spanish Landing   

The Maritime Museum of San Diego is building a full-sized, fully functional, and historically accurate replica of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo's flagship, San Salvador.
