Boat lovers have a great selection of San Diego Harbor cruises from which to choose. Tours of the harbor are available daily, ranging from brunch and dinner cruises to sightseeing excursions. In addition to regular cruises, private yachts are available for special occasions, such as wedding receptions.

Meal cruises are available during both the early afternoon and evening. Usually, a complimentary glass of wine or champagne wets the passengers' appetites before starting on a multiple-course gourmet meal. Sightseeing expeditions take people through the harbor to view the San Diego Skyline. These tours are narrated, making San Diego Harbor cruises educational as well as fun. Passengers will see the North Island Naval Sub Base and the Coronado Bay Bridge, among other impressive landmarks.

Special San Diego Harbor Cruises

Whale watching cruises begin in the San Diego Harbor and venture out into the open seas. The cruise company actually guarantees whale sightings, because each winter schools of gray whales travel from the Bering Sea to Baja California, passing San Diego along the way. These tours begin the day after Christmas and run through March.

People can charter private yachts for San Diego Harbor cruises. The largest boats can accommodate 450 passengers for a standing reception, and over 300 for a sit down dinner. A private tour of the harbor makes a party memorable for both hosts and guests.
