"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.

"A MUST"

I have lived and traveled to San Diego and never took the time to do a Harbor Cruise. It was absolutely beautiful and our narrator was so knowledgeable and funny. So worth it. Bring a lightweight jack JUST in case as it does get chilly at times on the water - park at the USS Midway Museum $10 for 24 hours and walk to the cruise line - super close. Food/drink/restrooms on board. We did the 2 hour cruise - GO! Next day go to Pte. Loma for a birds eye view of where you were on the cruise. So worth it.

"Whale watching cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 25, 2019 NEW
My husband and I booked the whale watching cruise out of San Diego and found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. The guides are informative and you are guaranteed to see whales and dolphins. For the price we found it to be good value for money and a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The cruise out to the area where you will see the whales is nice and scenic also. Book in advance as they can get busy

We bought tickets at the marina to this attraction and just caught the entry and it was a good time spent. Nice 1 hour trip overlooking the harbour of San Diego. Some good info and option to drink plenty on the ship with snacks all around.

"Whale watching and Harbor cruises "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 10, 2019
We did both on 2 different days. On the whale watching tour, we didn’t see any whales and were given rain check tickets to return a second day. Both cruises were narrated by knowledgeable staff who were helpful and courteous. We will stick with them if we’re ever back in San Diego.

"Fun day sighting in San Diego"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 27, 2019
My friend and myself went to San Diego for the day. We decided to go on a two hour boat cruise. I found coupon for two on Groupon for almost 50 % off, which was $32.00. We went on a Tuesday so it was too busy. They have table and chairs on the lower lever and benches and some table and chairs on the upper level. They also have a snack bar and drinks you can purchase. We went toward and past the Coronado Bridge, then came back to let people off since they had been in for the two hours, then new people boarded for their two hour cruise. We then headed the opposite direction and enjoyed seeing some seals sunbathing on floating wooden docks. I would reccommend this boat trip. There is parking next door, or at Sea Port Village with a 10-15 walk which is a nice stroll.
