SSC Pacific is located on Point Loma peninsula. Located approximately seven miles from downtown San Diego, SSC Pacific occupies more than 500 acres. To the west, the center overlooks the Pacific Ocean; immediately to the south, Mexico; and to the east, beautiful San Diego Bay, the skyline of San Diego and the Laguna Mountains, which slope to the Anza-Borrego Desert National Park. In this natural setting, SSC Pacific offers a campus-like atmosphere. SSC Pacific also has satellite installations in Hawaii, Philadelphia, Norfolk and the western Pacific.
