"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.

"Saturday Brunch Cruise, Endless Mimosas and Views"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 18, 2019 NEW
Absolutely incredible time from the moment we boarded to the sad steps of debarkation. The waiter/bartender never let our mimosas get low and the buffet was delicious with such a variety. The chocolate covered strawberries were our favorite!! You can’t beat the views and all the while on a boat ride. You really can’t beat it for the price! We highly recommend!!!

"2-hour Harbor Cruise was Awesome "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 18, 2019 NEW
We have been on the competetor’s cruise which was good, but his one was even better. So much great information. We highly recommend it. The only thing is I read there is no food or drink allowed on board and saw others brought refillable water bottles. Wish we would’ve. Wear sunscreen and enjoy this awesome cruise.

"The Patriot is FUN!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 17, 2019 NEW
This was our second time taking The Patriot Speedboat out via Flagship Cruises--did not dissappoint again. The first time we went was in Dec 2018, and we sat towards the front. The boat holds I would guess about 60-70 people. It take you all through the bay, and we even saw sea lions. The second time we went was last weekend--little bit different experience. We sat towards the back and got DRENCHED as the boat whips you around like a water ride at an amusement park. It was awesome! This is a great option for sight seers that are also thrill-seekers. We didn't care about getting wet b/c we were laughing too much.

Best way to get to Coronado from San Diego. Only $5 one way. The ferry is clean and well maintained. Employees are kind and efficient. We enjoyed Coronado so much we visited twice on our vacation and took the ferry both times. So easy, no need for a car!!
