California State University Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime) is located in Vallejo, California, and is a unique and specialized campus of the 23-campus California State University (CSU) system. We are one of only seven degree-granting maritime academies in the United States — and the only one west of Texas.

Nestled along the shores of the Carquinez Straits, California State University Maritime Academy is the ideal location for your next company meeting, symposium, banquet, athletic event, or conference.

Here at Cal Maritime, generations of rich maritime tradition combine with modern facilities and services to provide both an unforgettable and enriching setting for your event.

Our world-class facilities ensure that you will have the best event possible, and our experienced staff will make sure that you enjoy your time here as much as your guests do. Hosting your event at Cal Maritime carries with it several distinct advantages:

Accessible, yet private location – Just seconds from a major interstate (I-80), we are completely surrounded by northern California hills and beautiful shoreline. There is no through traffic, so you and your guests can arrive and depart in peace.

Secure Campus & Facilities – A 24-hour patrol by campus police and public safety officers lets you relax and enjoy your time here.

The right price – At Cal Maritime, we know that you have many options, and we would like to invite you to host your event here. We offer a wide variety of venue options at realistic price.

The right people – Our staff is trained to handle hundreds of young, ambitious Merchant Marine cadets every day. Let us bring that experience to bear and show you exactly what it means to be professional, punctual, and courteous.
