Sail along the San Diego Bay on this relaxing One-hour cruise. While aboard, enjoy views of the city, as well as US naval vessels, the Star of India, and the Coronado Bridge. Catch sight of the Hotel del Coronado, and be on the look out to spot sea lions in their natural habitats. Along the One-hour route, you can purchase a snack and drink at the snack bar, and relax as you cruise the water.

Sit back and relax as you cruise San Diego Bay. Listen to an entertaining guide share history and highlights of the city while pointing out sites like North Island Naval Air Station, Cabrillo National Monument, USS Midway, and the Star of India—the oldest iron-hulled sailboat still afloat.

Onboard, enjoy comfortable outdoor seating with panoramic views on the spacious sun decks.  Take in the refreshing breeze while gazing over the waters, scanning the landscape as you cruise 13 miles (21 km) of the San Diego coastline. View the beautiful Coronado Bay Bridge as you pass by Coronado Island and Shelter Island.

Capture photos and videos of the sunbathing sea lions, and hear the barking as the pups and adults playfully slide on and off the bait barges as you pass by Point Loma. As you cruise back, get a glimpse of Seaport Village, a waterfront shopping and dining complex, and get inspired to shop and dine upon your return to shore.
