"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.

"Just ok.. Nice to see the whales"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed April 04, 2018 NEW
It's just ok as it is almost 3.5 hours. Boat rocks a lot.... I did not got dizzy but my girl and wife did. We saw 4 whales but you just see glimpses of them... do not regret it but will not do it again. I will recommend a shorter ride.. and if you want to see whales rather go to Mexico.

"Nice way to visit Coronado Island"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed April 01, 2018 NEW
We came into San Diego on a cruise ship, so the pier for Flagship Cruises was very close. A group of us had decided to go to Coronado Island for the day and taking the ferry there made it very easy. Reasonable prices and nice views from up top to take pictures added to the experience.

Crew was so helpful- even letting me borrow a jacket in the cold weather! The volunteer docents were very knowledgeable about marine life. Spotters helped us see a few whales, dolphins and a sunfish. Great day to get out on the water in San Diego!!
