Full description
Experience the sights of San Diego Bay on this fully-narrated cruise. See the harbor's historic ships and Coronado Bay Bridge while taking in beautiful skyline views. Listen as the professional crew narrates the rich local and military history, local points of interest, and facts about San Diego landmarks.

Home to the United States Navy's Pacific Fleet, San Diego Bay boasts some of America's most historic warships, such as the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan and the U.S.S. Midway. The bay offers scenic sights of the Coronado Bay Bridge and Seaport Village, and is also home to wildlife such as blue heron, sea lions, and pelicans. This sightseeing cruise also features an ecological twist: along with landmarks, natural wonders, and military history, the tour spotlights local environmental efforts through narration, video clip,s and on-board displays.

Choose between a 1-hour cruise of either the North or South Harbor, or book the 2-hour cruise, which includes both. San Diego’s North Harbor cruise takes you past the Star of India and other historic ships in the Maritime Museum, Harbor Island, North Island Naval Air Station, and Shelter Island. Sea lion sightings are not guaranteed, but are most often seen on the North Bay Route. The South Harbor route includes sightings of the Coronado Bridge, the U.S.S. Midway Aircraft Carrier, the U.S. Navy Surface Fleet, and the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado.

You will also have the opportunity to see the colony of California sea lions that live on the bat barges near Point Loma. The cruise brings you close enough to hear them barking and observe the playful adults and pups interacting and sliding on and off the barges. The California sea lion is not an endangered species, but it is protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act. If you are looking for the best way to see San Diego Bay and its attractions, come aboard this harbor cruise.
