*Editors Pick!

We had a chance to experience San Diego from a new perspective on the water, and there's no better way to enjoy the day. Together with my son and his friends, we hopped aboard a Hornblower Cruise for some spectacular sightseeing, and a chance to learn about the history of San Diego.  

The 90-minute Best of the Bay harbor tour explores over 20 miles of the Big Bay passing by Seaport Village, Shelter Island, ship-building and dry-docking facilities, Coronado Island, Point Loma, and Cabrillo National Monument, and more!

Get Up Close With Marine Animals!

On the day of the cruise, sea lions, seals, and seabirds were all on display in the San Diego Harbor. Believe it or not, there are even sea turtles in our bay. This is a fantastic opportunity to connect kids to marine animals. My son and his friends were so excited to take it all in, and enjoy a special day on a cruise.

Safety Measures Are Implemented On Every Hornblower Cruise

Hornblower Cruises are a safe outdoor family activity. The open air cruise was spacious and allowed plenty of room for social distancing.  There were sanitizing stations throughout the ship, masks are required, crew members have daily temperature screenings, and Hornblower has reduced the number of guests on board. The overall experience is more intimate and of course fun.
