The capsule, which launched last Saturday, parachuted down into the Atlantic Ocean near Port Canaveral around 8:45 a.m.
The seven-seat capsule brought its "crew" of one test dummy back to Earth in the same way that American astronauts returned to the planet in the Apollo era in the 1960s and 1970s, before the 1981-2011 Space Shuttle Program.
The '"Demo-1" was the first private mission to the ISS, and the first time a space vessel capable of carrying humans had been launched from U.S. soil in eight years.
"It won't be long before our astronaut colleagues are aboard Crew Dragon and Boeing Starliner vehicles, and we can't wait", United States astronaut Anne McClain said on behalf of the ISS crew after the capsule left the station.
In June, the Crew Dragon will have to conduct an emergency abort system test, which will ensure that this feature is good to go before SpaceX sends a human crew to the ISS. All this is "leading to a day where we are launching American astronauts on American rockets from American soil", he said.
The SpaceX Crew Dragon will aim to land 200 miles off the US East coast, at around 12.30pm GMT (7.30am ET).
Bridenstine told Reuters the cost per seat on the Boeing or SpaceX systems would be lower than for the shuttle or Soyuz. Crew Dragon launched on March 2 from Florida's Kennedy Space Center.
Much work, of course, remains to be done to get astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken on board Dragon for their mission to the station.

Crew Dragon's maiden flight into space is a major milestone in American space flight.
"This is an fantastic achievement in human history. the dawn of a new era in American human space flight", said Jim Bridenstine, the head of Nasa, which signed a $2.6 billion contract with SpaceX in 2014 to build a new generation of manned spacecraft. If that mission also succeeds, then SpaceX should be certified to carry astronauts back and forth to the station on a regular basis.
