"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.

"Nice Tour of the Harbor"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 11, 2018 NEW
We did the two hour harbor tour which takes you on two directions of the Harbor. It is one hour and then returns to port for a short time while people who did the one hour get off and others board the ship. It then goes the other direction in the Harbor. It has indoor and outdoor seating and you can move around. It has a bar and snacks inside throughout the your. It is narrated and they tell you about a number of different businesses and history of San Diego. The second hour of the tour they take you by the naval training area and past a number of different ships (destroyers, medical,aircraft carriers, etc. The narrator knew something about all of them we passed. We enjoyed it and it gives great views of the city. Buy the Groupon and enjoy the two hour tour.

We went for 2 hours, but would recommend one hour, unless you want to go by all the naval ships in south bay. Part of 2 hour tour was coming back to the dock and waiting for a new group to load... Thank you ro the ship mates.

"Great Experience"

My husband and I spent the day in San Diego and took advantage of the two hour cruise option offered by Flagship. We rode the Spirit of San Diego and had a great experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The offering of snacks and beverages on board were good. The narrator of the tour was very knowledgeable and was easily understood. I will say that it was much easier to hear what he was saying while on the top deck as opposed to the two decks below. The sound was a little muffled and it is difficult to hear what is being said while others in the room are talking. I would definitely recommend the top deck for the best experience. Overall, it was a fun, relaxing, and educational experience at a great price.

Lovely 15 minute cruise to Broadway Pier to Coronado. Jamail was extremely accommodating with our round trip passage. Thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday’s Market in Little Italy and the waterfront Children’s Park. Upper deck seating let’s you view the Coronado and San Diego waterfronts.
