San Diego Whale & Dolphin Watching Tours
San Diego is one of the best locations to watch whales year-round! Gray Whales migrate winter-spring from feeding grounds in Alaskan waters to calving lagoons in Baja California and back. In summer, the legendary Blue Whales- the largest animals on Earth- commonly feed offshore of the San Diego coast. They often see other species such as Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Pilot Whales and even Killer Whales on their cruises!
Champagne Jazz Brunch Cruises
Enjoy a full buffet, free-flowing champagne, gorgeous views and live music on the sun deck from KUSI’s Dave Scott Duo on the San Diego Bay with Hornblower’s Champagne Brunch San Diego Cruise.
San Diego Dinner Cruises
Whatever the occasion, raise your glass and enjoy a three-hour dinner cruise. You’ll dine and dance on the gorgeous San Diego Bay, where the sparkling lights of the city will serve as your backdrop.
Full Moon Cruises
Whatever you’re celebrating, few places are as beautiful as the deck of a Hornblower yacht on the night of full moon over San Diego. Enjoy champagne, an elegant dinner, and plenty of time to stargaze on the outdoor deck with the ones you love
