Highly recommend this boat ride! You will get wet no matter where you sit. The boat ride is throughout the bay, gets you close to navy ships and also under Coronado bridge. They play various types of music throughout the ride to start your boat ride mood and also to keep you hyped up! The captain and staff are helpful and polite.

We love taking our out of town visitors on the harbor cruise. It is so informative and it’s just so nice to cruise around the bay. We have also done their brunch cruises which I highly recommend. Good food and free flowing champagne. Check groupon before you go as sometimes they have 1/2 prices for the harbor cruise.

"Okay tour but annoying tour guide..."

We enjoyed the boat ride itself and seeing all the things the bay had to offer, but the tour guide sounded like he was so bored of what he was talking about and had said it 100 times so he wasn’t at all enthusiastic. I get it like you do repeat the same things over and over every day but I mean we’ve never heard it or seen any of these things so yeah....kind of disappointing. Needless to say we bought a 2 hour tour and got off after the first hour because we were so tired of listening to that guys voice! And he asked for tips afterwards....cmon man. Why ruin it for everyone else.

"Competitor Cruise Boat is the way to go :("

We had booked the Stars and Stripes boat for the July 4th fireworks. The ticket said that it was drinks and tapas, assuming it was as nice as the drinks, champagne and tapas we had when we went on the Hornblower cruise the year before. From the moment we boarded the staff was not attentive, they were more concerned about getting their fireworks pictures than us getting ours. Standing in front of paying customers with their cameras! After waiting in line for a drink we found out that there were no 2 free drinks (like the Hornblower had the year before). So on top of $75 per ticket we paid for drinks. There were two tables on the mid level with a "sliders" buffet (small buns, burger, bbq and toppings). There was no chips, no dessert nothing but slider fixings! Hornblower had champagne, great DJ, two drinks with ticket and a huge spread of fruit, cheese, desserts! WE will never book with Flagship again! Very disappointed in this experience.

"Take both the North and South Harbor Cruises"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Great way to see SanDiego and the amazing the Naval bases, with its ships at port. Take both the North and South Harbor cruises to see all the sights. Air-conditioned seating in the enclosed deck and topside seating for a more panoramic view. Snacks, and beverages available during the cruise as well as beer and wine. Worth the trip and a great way to scope out what to explore next.
