Our guide to Two Hour San Diego Harbour Cruise & Sea Lion Adventure

The best way to see San Diego Bay is on Hornblower’s two-hour Harbour sightseeing cruise!

This 12-mile cruise is a complete tour of San Diego Bay with veteran crew onboard to narrate the rich history of the bay, local points of interest, city landmarks, facts about the military and California Sea Lions living off Point Loma.

Enjoy panoramic views of the San Diego skyline and more than 50 storied landmarks on San Diego Bay. The cruise route takes you past Seaport Village, Shelter Island, ship-building and dry-docking facilities, Coronado Island, Point Loma, and Cabrillo National Monument, among many others.

Along with landmarks, natural wonders and military history, this unique tour also spotlights local environmental efforts through narration, video clips and on-board displays

Relax on the comfortable seating and pleasant sun decks as you cruise around the large bay taking the opportunity to spot sea lions, soaring seabirds and many other species of majestic marine wildlife.

Have fun watching sea lions as they sunbathe on the rocks offshore - your guide will share with you some facts about the difference between seals and sea lions.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to capture all the sights in photos and video
