"Whales Watching Cruises"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed January 08, 2018 NEW
We have taken the trip with some great expectation, but returned rather disappointed. The trip is very informative, thanks to some marine wildlife volunteers onboard. Don't expect to see the Whales closeup, or anything at all. We saw some Dolphins and wild Seals from distance. Over all a good day out with family, but not a Whales watching experience. Take a warm jacket with you as it can get very windy and cold.

"Christmas Eve-Eve Dinner Cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 03, 2018 NEW
We took the Christmas Eve-Eve (Dec. 23rd) Dinner Cruise. It was a lovely clear night. The boat was festively decorated. The food was good. We had short-ribs and they were tender and delicious. You are greeted with a glass of champagne and there is dancing after dinner. All of the crew were super nice and super professional. We had a great time. We have gone whale watching on this line as well and it was a great experience.

"Perfect whale and dolphin watching day"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 25, 2017 NEW
The ship was clean, had lots of open seats and was very comfortable. It was easy to get a good view from all sides of the ship. The guide was knowledgeable and didn't talk too much so there was a lot of quiet time to just take in the views.

"Coronado Ferry"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 01, 2017
Flagship Cruises does harbor cruises and one of the Coronado Ferries which we took. It was a beautiful ride across the bay with excellent views. We previously took one of their dinner cruises and that was also great, but that was several years ago. Definitely take the ferry if you're going to Coronado and you won't regret it.
