We thoroughly enjoyed our Flagship cruise of San Diego Harbor. During the first hour the ship cruises the north side of the harbor. During the second hour, the ship cruises under the Coronado Bridge, along the Silver Strand and back along the Navy yard (?) and discusses all of the enormous Navy ships -- very interesting and impressive. The stop... More

We took the 2 hour harbor cruise, which included both the North and South Harbors. Enjoyed the information on the ships that were in the harbor that we got during our cruise. The ship served both soft drinks and adult drinks. Ride was smooth and we were able to view the seals sunning them selves and even seen some dolphins.... More

Went on the Dinner Cruise on Sunday night and the service and food was fantastic! Ship was pretty empty as it was Super Bowl Sunday but staff was great and we had a good time! For the money I give this an A+

I took my son, a Navy Sailor to be on a 2 hour Harbour cruise before his boot camp deployment and I had such an amazing time touring through our beautiful city of Dam Diego. Thank you Flagship for helping me create lasting memories with my son!

I have been whale watching 6 times and seen a total of 3 whales...until this cruise. We must have had 100 whales cavorting about: snorkeling, flipping their tails and breaching. The boat ride out was smooth and although it was a cloudy day, the visibility was good. The naturalist was ecstatic with all the activity and that there was more... More

I setup for our group of 55 to do the 2 hour lunch cruise. Scot was super easy to work with and worked with my budget. The waiter staff did a great job and the food was excellent. The tour went up and down the coast and was very informative. I would highly recommend using this for entertaining big or... More

The ship is big and we found seats on the second level. There are not a enough good seats on the top deck. The food and drinks are well priced and service was fast. We weren't very lucky seeing whales. The kids weren't ever in a good position to see. Captain tried a lot to find them with some success.... More

Three of us went on this afternoon whale watching cruise, and we enjoyed it very much. There were some expert volunteers from Birch Aquarium to give us facts and information about gray whales and their migration to Mexico to breed. We also saw seals, sea birds and three kinds of porpoises. There's a snack bar on board that sells a... More

My boyfriend and I took a trip down to San Diego harbor for his birthday. We had vouchers for a two hour harbor tour but when we got there the front desk advised us that only "1 hour" tours were running due to weather. We were a bit disappointed but totally understood. It was the best one hour we had... More
