San Francisco Maritime National Park Association (SFMNPA or SF Maritime) is a non-profit organization (501-3c) that strives to bring Maritime history to life by inspiring passion for maritime heritage, education and preservation. SF Maritime Association also helps support the National Park Service – SF Maritime National Historic Park through education programs, fundraising, and other areas of support.
Since 1950, our education programs have been bringing maritime history to life aboard the historic ships at Hyde Street Pier, Pier 45 as well as on the San Francisco Bay itself. Your donations will help to keep our programs affordable as we are committed to ensuring that everyone can enjoy what we have to offer. From our various programs (sailing, science, history, summer camps etc) kids from the bay area learn resourceful life skills and maritime education that they will utilize for the rest of their lives.
