Capt. Erwan Le Rouzic, master of Le Boréal, and Michael Nerney, marketing manager for the Port of San Francisco, exchanged plaques during a ceremony commemorating the occasion.
Le Boréal stopped as part of a coastal voyage from Vancouver, BC, to Acapulco. In Acapulco on Oct. 2, the ship will embark on a 44-night itinerary that ends in Ushuaia, Argentina.
From there, Le Boréal will spend the next few months sailing in Antarctica.
