Quick Cruise (the most affordable Cruise option!)

The perfect choice for a brief private excursion on the bay!  A wonderful nautical experience for kids and adults alike - in Classic Bay Cruise comfort.  Wave "hello" up-close to a playful seal; watch the seabirds fly effortlessly above the water's surface; admire the magnificent boats and scenery along the way!  Oh, what fun!  The ultimate (abrieviated) way to enjoy the Bay!

Classic Cruise (about $20 per person per hour with a maximum party of six passengers!)

Enjoy our most popular private cruise - and see the city skyline and Bay front in unique style! Cruise itineraries are flexible but always include a scenic pass-by of some of San Diego Bay's most amazing sights.  Enjoy the fresh calm air of a morning cruise, the magic and sparkle of the Bay by day, or choose an evening cruise to relax as the day melts into evening and the lights of the city come alive after a spectacular sunset!

Ultimate Cruise (the MOST fun nautical shindig!)

Delight in an entire afternoon or evening of bliss on the water. Maximum flexibility for any outing!

Pub Crawl Cruise

Channel your inner pirate for a seafaring adventure no-nay-never to be forgotten!  A Classic Bay Cruise that includes stops at two of San Diego's landmark bayfront taverns to partake of a libation at each (included bounty) and then pillage forth at the whim of your merciless Captain!  A great way to celebrate any scurrilous occasion!

What should you wear and bring?

We suggest you dress appropriately for the day, keeping in mind that it tends to be cool on the water, especially at dusk.  For your feet, a pair of tennis shoes or deck shoes is your best choice.  Don't forget your camera and sunglasses!  We provide complimentary chilled beer, white wine and snacks.
