"Great experience!"
July 2016
The one hour guided tour of the South Bay was both educational and relaxing. The sights to see were well worth pictures and the crew was friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely sail again!

""A Widow experience""
July 2015
I am a widow lost my husband of 34 years married. I said it's time to travel so I have one son in San Diego, I booked the most amazing cruise with FlagShip. My son and his wife and our grandchildren had an amazing time, learned about the sights and loved the view of that bridge going towards Coronado. My only regret is that the camera didn't work and our pictures prior to getting on the boat didn't develop. But I will be back, to retake the picture and have another beautiful time.

"A wonderful day on the bay"
January 2015
This sail was on my 25th anniversary. The captain was very informative and great at his job. Only 4 others on the tour made it very special. There were all kinds of free drinks and snacks for us. They provided coats and blankets and everything you could need for a perfect day on the water.

"Valentine’s dinner cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 15, 2020 NEW
It was roughly $100 per person for the Valentine’s dinner cruise which is not bad however be prepared to sit with another couple unless you pay extra to sit by yourself. It was pretty good food the steak was amazing and it was a nice time. I would definitely recommend at least once for the experience. I won’t be paying that much for next years v-day dinner to share the table with someone else and they didn’t even tell us until we boarded the ship and sat down that it was going to happen. The couple we were with was very nice don’t get me wrong and it would’ve been great on any other day but v-day is the day you want to be alone and with your partner you know.

"Why didn’t we do this Whale Watch cruise before!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 25, 2020 NEW
Excellent in every way. Even the whales showed up on time where guides and crew took us. Volunteer guides from Birch Aquarium were excellent. Husbands bad knee was problematic at times in the swells or when I switched sides to view whales. Crew was always there to assist me. Boat even has sea sickness pills should you need them. Snacks and drinks available A great bargain tour at modest cost. Boat left in time and returning likewise. Parking available at nearby public lot alongside Midway aircraft carrier

"Christmas brunch cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 28, 2019
Last year we were on the Hornblower Christmas cruise and it was bad. Bad table, ran out of food. The cruise on Flagship this year was a ball, the entertainer was great and made the cruise fun. Newer ship, sat upstairs, great! My wife and adult daughter also loved it. Would only do Flagship in the future.

"Disappointed"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed December 16, 2019
We looked forward to this cruise to see the parade of lights. Boarding was no problem. The staff was very welcoming. Seating availability was good. My husband, myself and our 7 year old son tried to see the light parade but it was over crowded with no room to view it due to the side of the boat of which we were sitting. We tried to enjoy the Christmas music but several parents used this opportunity for free babysitting with their children running a muck and pushing guests going up and down the stairs. It was mentioned several times to please supervise your children but apparently it did not apply to those kids' parents. We pretty much missed most of the light show and only able to see the tail end of the show as space started to open up for us on that side of the boat.
