Your choice of a Harbor Tour OR Whale Watch daily with Go San Diego Card.

An informative and exciting Harbor Tour from Flagship Cruises is the perfect way to enjoy the best highlights of the San Diego coast. Departing from downtown San Diego, the cruise ship is equipped with a top-notch guide, comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, plus snacks and other refreshments for purchase.

Choose between two different tours: the North Bay Tour (which is more focused on naval landmarks and sites) or the South Bay Tour (featuring Coronado Island and other scenic spots). On these professionally narrated tours of San Diego Bay you’ll learn about several iconic historical and natural sites, including the North Island Naval Air Station, Harbor Island, Shelter Island, the Coronado Bay Bridge, the Cabrillo National Monument, and more! These tours are ideal San Diego attractions for visitors of all ages, combining sightseeing fun with educational content aboard a convenient vessel.

These Harbor Tours with Flagship Cruises have been called the best sightseeing opportunities on the bay – of course, that’s no surprise when you’re sailing with San Diego’s longest running harbor cruise company!

Go San Diego Cardholders cannot take a Harbor Tour and the Whale Watch with Flagship Cruises on the same day, but they are permitted to visit both attractions on separate days. Cardholders may also take the North Bay and South Bay Tours on separate days. Cruises run frequently, so it’s easy to swing by when it suits your schedule and hop on the next cruise.

Harbor Tours by Flagship Cruises run daily, year ‘round. Comfortable indoor and outdoor seating is available. Snacks, beer, wine and sodas are also available for purchase. No reservations are required, frequent departure times daily!

Save on admission to Flagship Cruises, plus San Diego's top museums, sights, and tours all for one low price with the Go San Diego Card!

Comments about Smart Destinations Flagship Cruises: North OR South Bay Tour:

My family took advantage of our Go Card San Diego passes which offer admission for an one hour harbor tour. We decided to upgrade to an two hour (north and south harbor) tour to take in the beauty of San Diego. The upgrade cost was nominal and worth the money. We took the last two hour tour of the day (4:15pm) and it seems to be the best time to visit. The crowd was light and we were able to get some seats on the top deck so we were able to gaze at San Diego's beauty in comfort. To top it off our tour guide was funny and kept us interested.

Comments about Smart Destinations Flagship Cruises: North OR South Bay Tour:

This was a nice one hour tour with the kids. The tour guide provided a wealth of information about the surroundings areas that we visited. The kids loved viewing all of the seals on the dock half way through the tour.

North Shore Tour
By Tina Verified Reviewer from Denver, CO on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Flagship Cruises: North OR South Bay Tour:

A fun hour excursion. It has been 20 years since I had taken the tour and learned some very interesting things. We took the north tour which covers most of the harbor, pt. loma and north island naval station. Well worth our time. Get there early if you want to sit outside on the upper deck.
