"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.

"Obnoxious. Offensive, shamefull"

San Diego bay is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. This obnoxious display of stupidity is the dredge of boating on this bay. ...its a cheap carnival ride, it's a tourist trap and offends the senses of locals who have enjoyed this beautiful bay for many years. Go away Patriot... our bay is not your amusement park.

"Great Ferry ride!"

We took the Ferry over to Coronado Island. It was a nice ride and with some great views of the harbor. The crew was friendly. It was easy to take it to the Island so we didn’t have to drive over and find parking. We enjoyed the shops over there on Coronado.

"Fantastic day"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 22, 2018 NEW
This is a great tour to take of San Diego - saw many things we wouldn't have had the chance to unless we were on water. We did the two hour tour and the guide was very knowledgable. Getting up close to the navy ships was amazing. The only downside was when ordering something to drink or to get snacks it seemed as if we were imposing on the server as she was 'too busy' texting. Check for deals on Groupon - we were able to get the two hour cruise for 4 people and paid $58.

"Not wheelchair friendly"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed August 17, 2018
The main deck (where you embark) for 2 hour harbor tour does not have a restroom. The other decks do. So a wheelchair user cannot use the restroom for the duration of the cruise.
