City Harbor Sightseeing Cruise

by Flagship Cruises & Events Duration 1h+ Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $28

Cruise past massive battleships, under winding bridges, and alongside bustling waterfronts on this whirlwind excursion through San Diego’s inviting harbor. Climb aboard a spacious sightseeing vessel, grab a seat, and gaze at the iconic landmarks of this beautiful city as they slowly drift by.

Head to a marina just steps away from the busy streets of downtown and step from the dock onto the wide-open decks of a modern boat. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, you’re sure to find a comfortable spot to begin your tour.

Watch as the skyline comes into focus and listen for the experienced crew to announce the first major site on the tour. With your camera ready, check out the hulls of mighty navy ships like the USS Midway and classic craft including the Star of India, a wooden tall ship. See the historic resorts and exclusive beachfront bungalows of Coronado and float between the towering columns of the bridge that connects it to the mainland.

As you loop around, consider grabbing a beverage from the onboard bar and don’t forget to chat with staff about any interesting features you want to learn more about. Whether you choose to explore the north or south side of the harbor—or both—you’re sure to get up-close looks at lots of fascinating features.

A amazing exciting fun cruise with excellent harbor ocean views and a must do cruise if your planning on visiting San Diego.

3/5 Jun 24, 2019

Thought it would be regular seats instead of table sests. The scenery was good. The sea lions and marina sites i thought would be more exciting to see. Cruise was ok overall.
